What is Aquatic Therapy?
Aquatic Therapy is the safest form of rehabilitation using the physical properties of water to assist in patient healing and optimal exercise performance. In pool therapy, the water offers buoyant support for the body, resistance to bodily movement, a natural reduction in pain, and a relaxing and refreshing feel. Combined with traditional physical therapy, it offers the quickest way to return to normal daily activities.
OTSP in Brigham City, Utah combines the best of pool therapy and traditional land physical therapy in one convenient place. After injury or surgery, patients are able to re-learn skills of daily life in a non-gravitational setting in the pool, then translate those skills back to land where gravity is reintroduced. Our combined therapy focuses on correct movement patterns and total body fitness, which not only improves function but reduces the risk of re-injury.
