Our state-of-the-art Rehabilitation Institute is equipped with a HEATED private therapy pool where our patients benefit from one-on-one treatment from a therapist. Aquatic Therapy in warm water is well known to provide quicker and better outcomes in rehabilitation. Submersion in warm water facilitates relaxation, better circulation and mobility, by warming the muscles, joints, ligaments, bones and nerves thus giving patients better movement and improved outcomes with therapy. Water provides buoyancy of up to 90% of patient’s body weight, which off-loads the bones, joints and muscles or any injured body part, allowing for more pain-free therapy. Strength, mobility, endurance and speed increase in aquatic therapy without having the pain and discomfort that would normally be felt while exercising on land.

Our Aquatic Rehabilitation program starts with the assessment of each patient’s specific deficits, needs and medical condition. Over time, patients will see improvement in their function and at the end of the rehabilitation program they are given a home exercise program to continue, which may be continued in water (pool, sea or a river) and they are given basic stretching and strengthening exercises to do at home.
