No matter what the cause, pain and movement problems can take a serious toll on your quality of life. Whether you’re trying to get a good night’s sleep, get through a day of work or just get to the grocery store, chronic pain and related issues can be a serious disruption. 

Physical therapy can and should be a cornerstone of any effective treatment plan for your condition, and an increasingly popular offering in this field is aquatic physical therapy. This therapeutic approach uses the unique properties of water to help patients achieve results. 

For patients in Havelock, North Carolina, who are seeking relief from a wide range of conditions, we’re proud to offer aquatic physical therapy at our clinic right here in town. The following information can help you learn more about the specific benefits of water-based therapy and the wide range of conditions it can help with. 

Aquatic physical therapy can benefit patients with the following conditions

Also sometimes called pool therapy, aquatic physical therapy uses the natural buoyancy and resistance offered by water to help patients achieve wellness goals. Aquatic therapy can improve functionality through the development of stronger supporting muscles and connective tissue while keeping pressure off the joints. 

Because of this, aquatic physical therapy is commonly recommended as part of a treatment plan for conditions including: 

  • Arthritis
  • Shoulder pain, including rotator cuff injuries
  • Knee pain, hip pain and ankle pain
  • Back pain and sciatica
  • Auto injury rehabilitation 
  • Post-surgical rehabilitation

Aquatic physical therapy is generally used as part of a broader treatment program that can include other methods like manual therapy, therapeutic exercises performed out of the water, dry needling and electrical stimulation. Your physical therapist can help you create a customized treatment plan based on your condition and background.
