Aquatic Therapy

The licensed physical therapists at Hattiesburg Clinic provide pool therapy for patients across Mississippi.

Aquatic Therapy Overview

Aquatic therapy is an innovative therapeutic technique that is used for muscle strengthening, improving cardiovascular stamina, increasing healing of injured tissues and many other benefits. Because of the low-impact environment, pool therapy is a great option for patients who are unable to exercise outside of water due to physical limitations or other issues. Aquatic therapy allows for ease of movement and increased circulation to help you heal faster, decrease pain or swelling and increase your strength.

Pool therapy uses buoyancy to support your weight and reduce stress on the joints. It also provides a safe environment to help you function at levels not possible on land and without the fear of falling. At Hattiesburg Clinic, our physical therapists provide customized care for patients of all ages. Call one of our physical therapy locations to see if aquatic therapy is right for you.

What You Can Expect

After your initial evaluation with our team of highly trained physical therapists, we might determine that aquatic therapy is the best treatment plan for your unique rehabilitation plan. Throughout your ongoing visits, we will likely adjust your sessions to include land-based exercises as well to maximize the gains you make in the water.

What conditions can aquatic therapy treat?

Nearly anyone with musculoskeletal conditions can benefit from aquatic therapy, but it is especially beneficial to treat patients suffering from:

  • Chronic illnesses or conditions
  • Balance disorders
  • Neurological disorders
  • Progressive weakness
  • Arthritis
  • Low back pain

It also helps treat patients who are recovering from joint replacement surgery or sports injuries.

The water allows for minimal stress on the joints and better facilitates movement. If you or a loved one are unable to perform dry-land exercises, ask your doctor about aquatic therapy.
