Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic Therapy offered in our 90-92 degree therapeutic pool offers many advantages and benefits to individuals recovering from all phases of injury or illness. The benefits of water exercise for people who have significant trouble with weight bearing exercises are vast and have tremendous advantages like increased joint flexibility; buoyancy offers a tremendous advantage because it reduces the effects of gravity allowing for increased joint range of motion. Increased muscle strength, water is 600-700 times more resistive than air which allows for strengthening of weakened muscles. Decreased pain, immersion in warm water increases an individual’s comfort by increasing blood supply to sore muscles and promoting relaxation. Improved balance, the uniform pressure of the water along with buoyancy provides support to your body which allows you increased time to react without the fear of falling or getting hurt.   Fortaleza’s Aqua Therapy program can be used to treat everything from post-surgical, non-surgical, orthopedic, rheumatologic, and neurological to chronic pain.
