Why Leading Edge Hydrotherapy?aquatic therapy

Aquatic therapy takes advantage of the physical properties of water, especially buoyancy. When submerged in water buoyancy supports a patient’s weight which facilitates exercise without the compressive loading forces present with routine land-based programs.

Research has shown that when combining aquatic therapy with land-based therapy, the patient’s flexibility and self-reported functional outcomes were more improved when compared to traditional land-based treatment alone. (Gulick D. et. al., Journal of Aquatic Physical Therapy, vol 15 #1, Spring 2007.)

Aquatic therapy Treats Many Conditions:

  • Orthopedic injuries
  • Total joint replacement (total knee replacements, total hip replacements, shoulder replacement surgery)
  • Athletic Injuries
  • Musculoskeletal Disorders
  • Balance Disorders
  • Pediatric Injuries (Fractures, sprains, strains and issues that reduce weight bearing capacity)
  • Spinal Conditions (Herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, stenosis)
  • Chronic pain
  • Multi-trauma
  • Arthritis and Fibromyalgia
  • Neuromuscular Disorders
