The benefit of aquatic therapy is the buoyancy provided by the water. The buoyancy assists in supporting the weight of the patient; therefore, reducing the stress placed on the joints. The reduced stress on the joints makes it easier and less painful to perform exercises.
City Center Rehab’s pool is 93 degrees, which assists in relaxing muscles and increasing blood flow to injured areas. City Center also provides their aquatic patients with private, handicap accessible shower rooms.
