Our Physical Therapy and Wellness Offerings

    Aquatic Therapy

    Aquatic therapy is conducted in a swimming pool that is temperature controlled. It can allow a person to perform movements at an earlier stage of rehabilitation due to reduced weight-bearing from the buoyancy of the water.

  • Kinesio taping (Rock Tape)

    an icon symbolizing aquatic therapy

    Kinesiology Tape is made from a stretchy fabric with adhesive applied in a wavelike pattern on the back. When applied, the tape decompresses by gently lifting the skin underneath it, creating more space between the layers of skin and fascia and allowing for increased circulation. The tension from the tape increases the brain's awareness of the area that is taped due to heightened sensitivity.

  • LSVT BIG Treatment for Parkinson's Disease

    an icon symbolizing aquatic therapy

    LSVT BIG trains people with Parkinson's to move their bodies normally. As the disease progresses, movements get smaller and slower, yet feel normal to the involved person. This causes problems with dressing and other tasks for self-care, usual household chores, and walking. The program focuses on recalibrating the brain to understand what normal movement is.
