Dosher Physical Therapy uniquely offers Aquatic Therapy for our patient population. Often it is a great benefit to perform Physical Therapy exercises in water with a skilled Physical Therapy or Physical Therapist Assistant for rehabilitation purposes. Often, exercise on land where a patient will feel the full effects of gravity are too intense for healing injuries and surgeries.
A qualified therapist will give specific attention to patient’s with individually designed exercise prescriptions for persons who are in need of aquatic rehabilitation.
Aquatic Therapy is used to provide an environment for rehabilitation in which the water’s natural buoyancy helps reduce the effects of gravity on healing structures of the body. The natural floatation eases exercise stress on achy and inflamed joints. This significantly improves people’s joint range of motion and strengthens muscles increasing function in everyday activity.
