“The Bridge to Wellness”

Julie’s story may be like yours.

Julie Bergmann, PT, discovered the amazing benefits of how aquatic physical therapy can be the perfect bridge to return to an active lifestyle again.

In 1992, Julie began using aquatic therapy for her own rehabilitation. She was amazed at how much performing exercises in warm water strengthened her entire body, the pain and function improved beyond her expectations every day. She decided she had to provide others in the community with another resource beyond traditional land therapy.

In October 1995, Julie opened the first orthopedic private practice with an on-site indoor pool in Orange County, CA specifically designed for aquatic rehabilitation.

Fast-forward to 2005. While Julie was training for the Pacific Coast Triathlon in Newport Beach, CA, she began experiencing severe foot pain and was diagnosed with tarsal tunnel syndrome. Her severe symptoms led to two surgeries and having to use crutches on and off for over two years. With her commitment to performing aquatic therapy exercises every day, she was finally able to walk again without pain. In 2010, she completed the Pacific Coast Triathlon.

Today, Julie continues to be passionate about providing the community with the opportunity to use the power of warm water to promote healing for both the body and the mind.

Julie can relate to the pain, the feelings of hopelessness, and all those “Am I crazy? “ moments of dealing with disabling chronic pain. She encourages you to not give up and to become your own advocate – the answers are out there. Don’t accept “you just have to live with it”. You CAN feel better!
