ATP utilizes the beautiful aquatic therapy pool at the Rose Bowl Aquatic Center to deliver the best aquatic therapy in Los Angeles. The soothing 91° water is the perfect environment to relax tight muscles and loosen stiff joints. Water is the perfect medium for patients who are unable to tolerate land-based therapy due to pain, decreased range of motion, muscle weakness, or de-conditioning.
The three main principles of water are buoyancy, hydrostatic pressure and resistance. These principles allow for decreased joint pressure, decreased swelling and increased strengthening respectively. Consequently, the list of conditions that aquatic therapy is beneficial for is endless, but some of the most obvious include:
- All low back ailments (including post surgery)
- All ankle, knee, hip, and shoulder conditions (including post surgery)
- Poor Balance
- Muscle weakness
- Cardiovascular de-conditioning
If you find that land exercises make your condition worse or if you’ve just had surgery and want to start your rehab in a joint friendly environment, give aquatic therapy a try!
All sessions are one hour long and all you need is a suit, towel, drink, hat and a great attitude! Once you graduate from the aquatic program you can finish your rehab at ATP’s clinic in South Pasadena.
We look forward to seeing in you the pool!!
