Aquatic Rehabilitation

The warm-water pool at HealthPoint Rehab in Cape provides a modality for therapist and patient to work out together to achieve optimum goals for rehab. Patients with a variety of diagnoses can benefit from therapy in the pool: myofascial pain syndromes, arthritis, lower back pain, knee or hip pain, or after surgeries on the lower back or lower extremities.

Aquatic therapy can also help those who have had a brain injury, stroke or spinal cord injury.

Treatments are designed for individual diagnosis with emphasis on strengthening, stretching, balance activities and pain reduction.

Benefits of Aquatic Therapy

  • Warm water helps relax muscles.
  • Buoyancy in the water helps take stress off the back and joints allowing easier movement and exercise.
  • The resistance of the water helps strengthen muscles and improves balance by giving added support.

Southeast HealthPoint's Aquatic Physical Therapy Program

  • One-on-one therapy is between the therapist and the patient the entire time.
  • Water depth is 3 ½ to 5 feet, and the patient does not have to get their face wet.

  • There are steps with handrails on both sides to enter and exit the pool. A hydraulic lift is also available for those who are unable to use the steps.
