Aquatic Therapy at La Plata Physical Therapy

Aquatic Therapy in La Plata, MD

La Plata Physical Therapy offers aquatic therapy. Aquatic therapy is a type of physical therapy that involves performing exercises in the water. Therapeutic effects of exercising in our Hydroworx Hydrotherapy Pool include an increase in circulation and a decrease in weight bearing activities, thereby decreasing stress to the joints while increasing strength and mobility.

Inside the pool is an integrated variable speed treadmill. The underwater camera and viewing monitor are used to re-educate gait after injury. Resistance jets can be used for sports specific training and cardiovascular conditioning.

Jets can be adapted to provide deep tissue massage. The therapeutic temperature also promotes pain-free movement.
