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 anyone of our locations most convenient for you. Following your evaluation you will be scheduled at one of our 2 pool locations: The Visser YMCA located at 3540 Fairlanes Ave SW, Grandville, MI 49418 or our Wyoming office at 1535 44TH St SW, Wyoming, MI 49509.
The therapist will be in the pool to instruct and assist you with an individualized exercise program. You are not expected to swim—walking and standing/sitting exercises are done without getting your hair too wet!
I had the pleasure of interacting with the entire staff in Cutlerville during my treatment. Everyone made the recovery process very tolerable, despite the “fears” of therapy that we patients/clients go through.Joe
