Aquatic Therapy

Birchaven Village offers one-on-one and group aquatic therapy programming in the comfort of our heated therapy pools.

Aquatic therapy is often used as a transitional form of therapy when individuals with weakness, pain or weight-bearing restrictions have difficulty tolerating traditional forms of physical therapy. Aquatic therapy reduces the impact of exercise and allows individuals to experience improved stability. Through its natural properties, water creates an environment for patients to utilize a greater range of motion with increased resistance, which helps improve balance and strength while experiencing a decreased level of pain.

You may benefit from aquatic therapy if you have any of the following:

  • Arthritis

  • Cardiac condition

  • Neck and back pain

  • Generalized weakness due to post-traumatic stress/illness

  • Recent orthopedic surgery

Our highly-qualified team of therapists can work with your physicians to determine if an aquatic therapy program is right for you! Call us today to learn more.
