La Pine & Sunriver Physical Therapy

"Providing legendary care since 1987 "

AQUATIC PHYSICAL THERAPY

Our 90° Aquatic therapy pool uses the physical properties of water to assist in patient healing and exercise performance. One benefit of aquatic therapy is buoyancy. While submerged in water, buoyancy assists in supporting the weight of the patient. This reduces stresses placed on the joints. This aspect of aquatic therapy is especially useful for patients with arthritis, fractures and spinal pain.

The viscosity of water provides an excellent source of resistance. This resistance allows for muscle strengthening without the need for weights. Using resistance coupled with the water's buoyancy allows a person to strengthen muscle groups with decreased joint stress. The warmth of the water experience during aquatic therapy assists in relaxing muscles and increases blood flow to injured areas. Patients with muscle spasms, back pain, and fibromyalgia find this aspect of aquatic therapy especially therapeutic.

Warm-water therapy has been shown to increase independence in people of all ages with disabilities or chronic conditions. With a temperature of 90°, our pools offer a warm, supportive environment for rehabilitation. The pool features easy access for people of all abilities and multiple water depths for one-to-one therapy. Swimming skills are not required for pool therapy.

We are the only clinics in Sunriver and La Pine that have warm water aquatic therapy available.
