Reduce stress on your joints and get positive results
Designed with your body in mind, Aqua Therapy is a specialized form of Physical Therapy that delivers significant positive results. Elite Physical Therapy is one of the few places to offer Aqua Therapy in Rhode Island.
For years, research has demonstrated amazing responses from patients participating in a detailed rehabilitation program in warm water (approximately 86° F), speeding up the recovery time from an injury or orthopedic surgery.
Thanks to its buoyancy, water has been—and still remains—the best environment to achieve full body function, regardless of injury. Because of the resistance, exercising in the water can improve strength while lessening the amount of stress placed on joints.
Aqua Therapy can be used on patients of all ages, even he or she doesn’t know how to swim!
