Pool Therapy

At RIM we believe pool exercise (aquatic therapy) is ideal for individuals with painful joints or weak muscles. Aquatic therapy may also be effective for those who suffer from back pain, those recovering from surgery or injury, arthritis and pre- or post-natal women with muscle or joint pain associated with pregnancy.

Benefits of Aquatic Therapy

  • Patients do not have to know how to swim to participate
  • The buoyancy of the water eases the stress on joints, bones and muscles
  • Aquatic therapy addresses adaptations that may be necessary following trauma, such as spinal cord injury
  • Techniques in combination with the warm water can induce relaxation, promote increased range of motion and decrease muscle spasms or spasticity

Aquatic Therapy programs at RIM are designed for the individual. RIM's therapists are specialists at developing the right pool exercise based on individual need.
