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.
