Aquatic Therapy

The underwater treadmill is a great tool for many rehabilitation patients. The buoyancy of the water supports the weight of the patient, taking strain off painful or weak areas. This allows us to work on improving gait, muscle strength, and range of motion. Walking in water is also a significant cardiovascular workout and can be helpful for fitness and weight loss goals.

Laser TherapyLaser Therapy

Therapeutic laser therapy uses light of a specific wavelength to stimulate intracellular changes that can produce a variety of beneficial effects including reduced pain and inflammation as well as stimulate healing. Laser therapy is painless (many patients even find it relaxing), with few side effects, and can be applied to wide range of neurologic and orthopedic conditions seen in our physical rehabilitation patients.
