What can the pool be used for?

  1. Skilled Physical Therapy. This is one on one treatment with a therapist to treat a range of conditions. It requires a prescription from a provider.

  2. Aquatic Walking People who don’t require physical therapy may still benefit from using the pool to walk. Walkers will share the pool with up to 3 others for 30 minute walking sessions.


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 that we use is a Hydroworx 2000. The bottom of the 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.

Why water?

  • Water supports by reducing the effects of gravity

  • Water provides resistance

  • Water soothes and relaxes for comfortable movement

How do I know if I qualify for aquatic therapy?

UHH MP Rehabilitation 280W

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 recommend that you check with your insurance provider before making the final decision.
