If you’ve had an injury or illness that requires physical therapy, you may benefit from aquatic therapy—a specialized form of physical therapy that uses the resistance of water instead of weights.
Aquatic therapy at Emerson Hospital is available in a warm-water therapeutic pool with an underwater treadmill and video analysis.
Our physical therapists work with patients who are recovering from various injuries, integrating aquatic therapy with traditional land-based therapies. One of the benefits of aquatic therapy is that it takes excess pressure off your joints, facilitating recovery from injuries as well as issues due to chronic conditions.
Emerson Hospital’s therapy pool is available to patients with a doctor's referral, and aquatic therapy typically is provided once weekly in conjunction with one land-based appointment.
