AQUATIC PHYSICAL THERAPY

What is "Aquatic Physical Therapy"

  • Aquatic Physical Therapy is the evidence-based and skilled practice of physical therapy in an aquatic environment by a physical therapist, or a physical therapist assistant under the supervision of a physical therapist.
  • The unique properties of the aquatic environment enhance interventions for patients of all ages with musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiovascular/pulmonary, and integumentary diseases,disorders, or conditions
  • Aquatic Physical Therapy interventions are designed to improve:
    • function
    • aerobic capacity/endurance conditioning
    • balance, coordination, and agility
    • body mechanics and postural stability
    • flexibility
    • gait and locomotion
    • relaxation
    • muscle strength, power, and endurance

 

What is the difference between "aquatic physical therapy" and "aquatic exercise"

  • Aquatic Physical Therapy requires the "skilled service" of a PT and/or PTA which may include:
    • The clinical reasoning and decision making skills of a PT/PTA
    • The patient has impairments and/or disabilities which can be minimized or eliminated with aquatic physical therapy; and
    • The patient has potential to maximize functional goals/outcomes to improve quality of life
  • Aquatic Exercise is the utilization of water for the implementation of quality of life, fitness-related or general health-related goals; can be delivered in a group setting that includes multiple clients and diagnoses; can be delivered by anyone; and has no accompanying paperwork, insurance involvement,or written follow-up information required.
