Aquatic (Pool) Therapy

Aquatic (Pool) Therapy
  • Experience the benefits of exercising in a weightless environment! Southtowns Physical Therapy has been providing aquatic therapy services since 1994. The custom-built rehabilitation pool has a gradual slope from 3 feet to 6 feet, allowing patients to work in both un-weighted and partially-weighted conditions. The pool is kept at 96 degrees which is much more comfortable than local public or gym pools. "Jacuzzi-like" spa jets and powerful resistive currents are also available.
