What is aquatic therapy?
Aquatic therapy uses the power of water to help you improve strength and function. Improving your quality of life. The therapy pool is an underwater treadmill. You enter the pool at zero depth and are gently lowered into the water. A certified therapist will guide you.

How do I know if I qualify for aquatic therapy?
All patients who have an order from their doctor or advanced care provider to recieve physical therapy are evaluated on their first appointment. If the therapist feels that aquatic therapy would be beneficial, he or she will talk with you and your doctor about that option. In general, both the therapist and your doctor must agree that aquatic therapy is medically necessary in order for health insurance providers to approve it. As always, we recomment that you check with your insurance provider before making the final decision.
Can I use the therapy pool for fitness walking?
Yes. People wishing to use the pool for fitness will need a referral from their doctor or advanced care provider. The referral paperwork will soon be available directly from every UHH provider or for download from this page. Once the paperwork is completed, you'll call the Mineral Point Therapy Center to make an evaluation appointment at 608.987.2574.
