Aquatic Therapy

Low-Impact Physical Therapy in Ravalli County

Patients undergoing physical rehabilitation are typically dealing with reduced range-of-motion in some part of their body. Physical therapy consists of carefully crafted exercises that stretch the injured muscles so that they can regain strength and fluidity. In some cases, even standard physical therapy exercises are too much for patients to handle, in which case, aquatic therapy may be recommended.

Swimming Pool

Aquatic therapy is an essential component of functional rehabilitation for patients who have limited tolerance to land-based exercise programs. The buoyancy of the water, coupled with the therapeutic effect of the heated water, allows for a graded progression through partial weight-bearing exercises. Aquatic therapy also can allow athletes and post-operative patients to recover at a faster rate.

MDMH rehabilitation services is equipped with a state of the art Hydroworx 2000 variable depth pool that features a moveable floor, 8’x12′ underwater treadmill, resistance jet technology, and computer and camera system to satisfy the varied demands of traditional physical rehabilitation, elite athletes as well as community wellness programs.

Aquatic therapy is often used when treating:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Muscle strains and sprains
  • Joint replacement surgery recovery
  • Arthroscopy
  • Balance disorders
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • And more
