Aquatic Therapy is an alternative form of rehabilitation that utilizes a low-impact environment for exercise. Patients are able to gain strength, flexibility, endurance and mobility in a comfortable and pain–free environment. The properties of water (including elevated therapeutic temperatures, hydrostatic pressure, and buoyancy) allow for successful rehabilitation. The pool at Houston Methodist Orthopedics and Sports Medicine is equipped with a chairlift for those requiring increased assistance for safe entry/exit from the pool.
For the more advanced patient, the pool is equipped with a therapy jet, which offers a resisted current for those wishing to build strength and stamina.
