Our indoor pool
at our Huntington Beach office has four different water
levels to help accommodate all patients. Our specialized aquatic
therapy programs can accelerate the healing process and speed
up recovery by allowing patients to participate in active
therapy sooner after injury or surgery than traditional land
is effective for the treatment of most musculoskeletal
disorders of the spine and extremities including various
arthritic conditions. The buoyancy of the water allows
virtual pain free exercise to be performed. An aquatic
therapy program can be designed to improve strength, range of
motion and aerobic conditioning much earlier than usual for
certain patient conditions.
As an aquatic
program progresses, land therapy can be typically incorporated
as tolerated and the water treatment can be reduced.
This progression not only promotes therapy compliance by
providing a comfortable environment during the initial
recovery phase, it also allows a patient to return to work,
sports and normal activities sooner by minimizing strength
loss associated with immobility.
