McDonald Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine now offers aquatic therapy as a part of its' line of rehabilitation services. Aquatic therapy is a beneficial part of a comprehensive rehabilitation program. Water reduces the effect of gravity and often allows an accelerated rate of recovery. The resistance that water provides enhances the effectiveness and efficiency of aquatic-based exercise.
The staff at McDonald Physical Therapy will utilize aquatic therapy to promote basic concepts of rehabilitation such as range of motion, flexibility, strength and endurance. The buoyancy of the water allows for exercises designed to improve ambulation ability and balance issues.
