Witte Physical Therapy is excited to announce the addition of our new Aquatic Therapy Program. Aquatic therapy uses warm water to help improve motion and function, to lessen body weight and compressive forces on the back and legs, and to make exercising easier than it typically is on land.

The benefits of Aquatic Therapy are:

  • Muscle relaxation
  • Improved Circulation
  • Resisted strength training in a less stressful environment
  • Improved body awareness, balance, and core stability
  • Can begin standing, running, and jumping exercises quicker than on land
  • Decreased pain and hypersensitivity
  • Improved flexibility and range of motion

What is Aquatic Therapy used for:

  • Low and mid back pain
  • Joint pain
  • Neurological and orthopedic injuries
  • Post-surgical recovery
  • Muscle weakness
  • Chronic pain
  • Return to sport or activity quicker
  • Swelling
  • Balance issues
