What Is A Typical Aquatic Therapy Session Like


Aquatic treatment is a specific type of physical treatment that we are pleased to provide Exercise Sport Physical Therapy.

Our aquatic physical therapists acknowledge the benefits of using water treatments to increase motion and mobility while also relaxing your muscles.

Aquatic therapy sessions are meticulously planned and often begin with a warm-up. They will all take place in the water and will most likely begin with moderate, low-resistance workouts targeting the lower and upper extremities.

Short walks and gentle stretches may be included. Treatment will then progress to more complex cardiovascular and core motions, such as jogging, squatting, arm and leg swings, and leg swings.

You will also have some cool-down methods after your session. There will be a massage hose in several clinics that offers a deep tissue massage-like experience. This prevents lactic acid from accumulating.

How Long Will Aquatic Rehabilitation Take

Aquatic therapy treatment sessions are approximately 30-45 minutes long and specifically tailored to meet each patients individual needs. The aquatic treatment plan is coordinated with a land-based physical therapy plan and varies based on patient diagnosis. Once the patient’s aquatic goals are achieved the program progresses to land-based focus as needed.

Benefits Of Aquatic Therapy In Overland Park

Aquatic therapy at Exercise Sport Physical Therapy can provide the following benefits to your physical therapy treatment.

  • Resistance. Its natural resistance can be used to increase the rehabilitation process and strengthen muscles.
  • Improved Breathing. The respiratory muscles are forced to work harder during the therapy, which helps you breathe better.
  • Buoyancy. Water has a natural buoyancy for flotation and reduces gravity on aching muscles and joints. There is less pain when you exercise in water.
  • Hydrostatic pressure. With its hydrostatic pressure, youre supported and dont have to fear falling while performing exercises.
  • Pain Relief. Pain relief is certainly the most obvious benefit of aquatic therapy! It can help provide relief for many conditions, including arthritis, chronic pain, lower back pain, orthopedic injuries, sprains, strains, and tendonitis.
  • Wave propagation/turbulence. Wave propagation and turbulence allow our physical therapist to gently manipulate your body.
  • Relaxation. It provides a soothing and relaxing environment for aching muscles and joints.

Benefits differ from person to person based on what your end goal is for your therapeutic program in Overland Park, but overall you should expect to feel much better after each session with your therapist!

What Does Aquatic Rehabilitation Involve

At Cleveland Clinic Rehabilitation and Sports Therapy sites, the initial physical therapy evaluation takes place in the physical therapy gym where the patient is evaluated and treatment goals and plan of care are established. If pool therapy is indicated, the therapist will recommend follow up physical therapy sessions in the water. It is not necessary for patients to know how to swim before initiating an aquatic therapy program. A physical therapist or physical therapist assistant directs each treatment session. Access to the pool may be by either stairs, ladder or ramp depending on location. Cleveland Clinic provides access to lockers at most aquatic sites.

We suggest that patients consider bringing:

  • swimsuit
  • a lock for their personal items
  • a cover-up or towel
  • water shoes to protect their feet in the pool area
  • plastic bottle with drinking water to maintain hydration

For those patients that require assistance with dressing, showering or walking the hallway from the locker room to the pool, we ask that a caregiver be present during each treatment session.
