Aquatic Therapy

Low-Impact Physical Rehabilitation in Shelbyville

Aquatic therapy uses the buoyancy of water to help patients exercise without putting too much strain on their bodies. Water reduces pressure on joints and allows patients to enjoy a greater range of motion without pain or discomfort. It is particularly useful for elderly patients as well as people with arthritis, people recovering from joint surgery, and patients with other chronic pain conditions.

Aquatic therapy can help you:

  • Improve strength and flexibility
  • Increase your range of motion
  • Recover from surgery
  • Recover from injuries
  • Improve balance

At Major Health Partners, we have outfitted our facility with the Hydroworks 2000 warm water aquatic therapy pool. This is the same model used by several professional sports teams. Our patients undergo a guided, carefully paced, and customized therapy plan in a comforting, pain-free environment.
