Aquatic Therapy


Whether you are suffering from a work injury, a chronic pain condition or recovering from a surgery, aquatic therapy can provide an impact free environment. Arizona Sports Physical Therapy is proud to offer aquatic therapy at our Shea clinic location. Aquatic Therapy uses the physical properties of water to assist in patient healing and exercise performance. These properties include buoyancy, which allows less weight bearing through the joints, and viscosity, or resistance, which is patient controlled by the speed of the exercises. Pressure from the water assists in promoting circulation and decreasing swelling.
