Aquatic therapy combines the benefits of buoyancy and resistance to assist movement, progress strength, gait, and balance.
An initial evaluation by one of our physical therapists may be on land or scheduled right at the pool to establish your baseline. This can be performed at any one of our locations most convenient for you.
Following your evaluation you will be scheduled at one of our 2 pool locations: The Visser YMCA or at our Wyoming office.
The therapist will be in the pool to instruct and assist you with an individualized exercise program. You are not expected to swim—sitting, standing, and walking exercises are done without getting your hair too wet!
My therapist, Perla, is supremely knowledgeable, compassionate, sensitive, and encouraging. As a hip replacement patient who had experienced complications, I was very motivated to get well, yet cautious about making my condition worse. Perla knew which exercises would help most and just how hard to push me. She has always been positive and professional while being warmly human and cheerful!Kathy
