Aquatic Therapy can help you heal and recover when exercise on land is too painful or when swelling limits your ability to exercise. Our aquatic physical therapy program is located at Branon’s Pools on 248 Main Street in St. Albans and sessions take place in a heated therapy pool.
Water-based PT is especially helpful for patients with weight-bearing restrictions as the properties of water allow someone using crutches to exercise in the pool with greater freedom. Additionally, water-based therapy is comfortable, decreases stress on joints, reduces pain and improves circulation. The water also offers resistance, recruiting more muscles during exercise. Best of all, therapy in the water is fun!
Did You Know? NMC patients have access to the pool free of charge five days per week during designated “walking hours.” Call us to learn more about this partnership with Branon’s Pools.
