Aquatic Fitness PT Clinic – 17 Years of Success with a SwimEx Pool – Therapy BlogFebruary 12th, 2014
O’Fallon, MO – Aquatic Fitness, Inc.
When designing our physical therapy clinic with aquatics as our specialty, we wanted to provide the highest quality aquatic rehabilitation in our area. We purchased our first SwimEx pool in 1996. We chose a 700T with a 4-foot extension for our 2800 square foot space. Deciding factors in selecting the SwimEx included the versatility available with multiple water depth levels, variety of work stations to customize treatment programs, and resistive laminar flow water current. Combined with therapeutic water temperature of 93 degrees, we have been able to successfully individualize treatment plans the past 17 years. We rehabilitate a wide spectrum of orthopedic conditions, including spine (pre and post operative), hip, knee, and ankle injuries and surgeries, generalized arthritis, and chronic pain conditions to name a few. Aquatic therapy in our SwimEx pool allows patients to improve mobility, strength, stability, and cardiovascular conditioning in a decreased weight bearing environment, which typically allows for quicker progression with less pain.
The SwimEx pool system has been a reliable treatment tool for our company. Our pool’s daily operation is directly proportional to the revenue in our business. I have been responsible for our pool maintenance since opening in 1996. I am extremely impressed with the durability of the SwimEx pool system. I feel that the mechanical engineering of the SwimEx allows the pool to operate efficiently. Preventative maintenance has been essential to the longevity of our pool. The laminar flow wheel that provides resistive water current is utilized up to 10 hours per day, Monday thru Friday. In addition, I have experienced exceptional technical support from SwimEx over the years. We opened our second location in 2002 and installed another SwimEx 700T with a 4-foot extension.
In summary, two pools and 17 years later, Aquatic Fitness Inc. continues to provide the best Aquatic Rehabilitation in the St. Louis region utilizing the SwimEx pool systems.
