Aquatic Therapy

Our Boro Park, Park Slope and Williamsburg facilities offer an intensive aquatic therapy program featuring our special Aquaciser (underwater treadmill), whirlpool jets, and an adjustable seat for rest periods and seated exercise.

Aquatic therapy is particularly effective when you are in a lot of pain since the buoyancy of the water helps to decrease the pressure on joints and allows you to exercise with less difficulty than in traditional ways. We keep the water temperature between 95 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit, and this warm water helps to reduce your pain, relax your muscles and improve your circulation.

The resistance of the water increases your strength and endurance as well as improve your balance and coordination. These water exercises also improve your cardiovascular fitness and improve your muscle tone.

Aquatic therapy sessions each last one half hour and your treatment is private and personalized. There are showers, changing rooms and lockers in our aquatic therapy area, and all patients shower before entering the Aquaciser, which is constantly sanitized with chlorine.

If you are scheduled to receive aquatic therapy, be sure to bring your bathing suit. Bathing slippers are optional. Towels are provided.
