Aquatic Therapy Q & A

What is aquatic therapy?

Aquatic therapy is one of the services available at Elation Physical Therapy. During aquatic therapy, you perform treatments and exercise in the water.

The buoyancy, pressure, and therapeutic aspects of the water may make it easier for you to participate in your physical therapy treatment plan and help you reach your goals. 

Am I a candidate for aquatic therapy?

When you come in for physical therapy at Elation Physical Therapy, your provider conducts a comprehensive initial assessment to fully understand your current health needs and functional goals. 

They determine if you’re a candidate for aquatic therapy based on your diagnosis, medical history, physical health, and functional goals. 

The team uses aquatic therapy for a variety of conditions, including:

  • Joint pain
  • Arthritis
  • Muscle weakness
  • Injury recovery
  • Postoperative care


These conditions may make it hard for you to perform various therapeutic exercises because of excess stress or weight on the affected body part. 

Aquatic therapy eases the stress and weight on your body, while helping you engage in activities that improve strength, mobility, and function. 

What happens during aquatic therapy?

The Elation Physical Therapy team creates your personalized aquatic therapy treatment plan specific to your needs. 

During your aquatic therapy, your physical therapist works with you in the water, helping guide your movements. Being in the water allows you to work on exercises that may be too difficult for you to do in the exercise room.

Elation Physical Therapy has the Mirage underwater treadmill chamber by H2O Fitness, which may be part of your aquatic therapy. This innovative aquatic therapy tool allows you to walk on the treadmill without stressing your weight-bearing joints. 

For some patients, the team designs a program with simple movements to improve muscle strength, balance, and joint mobility. For others, the team may use aquatic therapy to design an aquatic yoga or Pilates program that helps them achieve their goals.

Your aquatic therapy may be one part of your treatment plan at Elation Physical Therapy. The state-of-the-art physical therapy treatments ease pain, improve mobility, and maximize your body’s health and function.
