Aquatic

We offer aquatic physical therapy services in the warm-water lap pools at Community Hospital Fitness Pointe and the Valparaiso YMCA. Water relieves pressure on the spine and lower extremities, which helps with weakness or arthritis in the spine or legs. Water therapy also can improve range of motion in the arms of those having difficulty lifting due to shoulder or neck problems. At the same time, water provides resistance that strengthens weak or painful muscles. The water's gentle pressure assists in the return of blood to the heart through the veins, which helps improve lower-extremity circulation and decrease leg swelling.
