We are the only providers of aquatic therapy in Hernando County. While land-based therapy is the more conventional choice, aquatic therapy offers clear advantages of a low-impact, low-stress, safe environment which in turn will allow you to rehabilitate, train, exercise, and regenerate your body. Our aquatic therapy sessions, just as our land-based, are one-to-one, individualized, goal-directed physical therapy.
Physical therapy begins with a complete assessment by a Doctor of Physical Therapy, to determine the proper course of treatment for you. The physical therapist and you will discuss your goals and a plan to achieve your goals. You and the physical therapist are a team, working together, during every treatment. During your treatments, the physical therapist may use several procedures such as:
Joint Mobilization – The application of movement and force to a joint for the purpose of increasing motion and range. It can be used to reduce pain. On occasion, discomfort may accompany the procedure.
Soft Tissue Mobilization – The application of movement and force to muscles, ligaments, nerves or other soft-tissue for the purpose of promoting healing and normalization. It can be used to reduce pain. At times, discomfort may accompany the procedure.
Pressure/Trigger Point Release – In this procedure the therapist or clinical assistant searches for muscles that are actively in spasm or causing pain. They then push on the muscle for 1-2 minutes. Initially, it will cause soreness but should diminish steadily. This helps to normalize the muscles and improve circulation in that area.
Therapeutic Exercises – Strengthening and balancing the muscles around your joints are essential for good movement, stability, and pain relief. Physical therapists are the leading experts in helping those with pain, arthritis, obesity, diabetes, and heart disease get fit and strong safely.
Even though there are many specialties and settings within the realm of ‘physical therapy’, physical therapists are trained to accelerate the body’s own healing process, hasten recovery, promote better movement, foster return to activities that promote quality of life. It is typically the first and best option for most any muscle/joint/nerve/tendon problems, even those that might require surgery since therapy can shorten the recovery time and improve the outcome of the surgery.
