Aquatic Therapy – Costa Mesa
Not ready for physical therapy yet? Perhaps your body is still too weak or in too much pain from your surgery or injury. Rather than pushing yourself through the pain and risking causing further damage to your body, aquatic therapy can serve as the perfect starting point to your recovery process. Your buoyancy and weightlessness in water allows you to perform strengthening, balance, and flexibility exercises you were previously unable to do on land.
The 92 degree saltwater provides a soothing environment for your muscles, warming them and softening them, increasing circulation and promoting blood flow to the affected areas to speed healing. The saltwater is less irritating to your skin than chlorine or other harmful chemicals, and salt also contains healing properties which can aid in the recovery process.
Our experienced physical therapists will design a program specifically tailored to your needs and goals, to either get you strong enough to “graduate” you to traditional (land) physical therapy, or to help you recover from your injury or chronic pain condition.
Speaking of Chronic Pain…
At Southern California Aquatic and Physical Therapy, we specialize in diseases and conditions that cause chronic pain. Many of our clients are never able to perform traditional physical therapy exercises because it causes too much pain. For these individuals, aquatic therapy can literally save the day!
If you suffer from arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, fibromyalgia, RSD/CRPS, or peripheral nerve injuries, contact us today – no one should be sentenced to a lifetime of pain!
