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!
You are all AMAZING!!! Amber and Jolene are the best! When Abbie became injured 1 1/2 years ago in dance- something she loved to do, she went through 3 doctors, another physical therapists, many painful procedures and finally found a Dr. Hedlund who sent us to Hulst Jepsen where she was blessed with 2 amazing therapist and their staff! Abbie thought she may never dance again! She had many ups and downs in her therapy but no one ever gave up on her. They always listened to her and helped her do her best! Now she has finished her therapy, is starting dance again in a few weeks, is auditioning for the Nutcracker and her dance team at school!!!Holly
