CP Rochester’s aquatic therapy pool offers physical therapy in a warm water environment, heated to 94-96 degrees (F). The warmth and buoyancy of the water promotes movement when it is too difficult to exercise on land.
The pool allows focus on:
· increases muscle and body strength/endurance through water resistance
· decreases pain
· allows for partial weight bearing and ambulation
· strengthens respiratory muscles
· relaxes muscles related to spasticity/tone to improve range of motion
· promotes independence
The pool is equipped with a ramp and a chair lift and uses pool chairs/stretcher to allow access for all individuals, regardless of mobility level.
