The Edge Physical Therapy offers aquatic physical therapy in our Essex and South Burlington locations. No facility in the area offers more pool access than we do!
Aquatic therapy offers unique benefits for many individuals of various diagnoses and body types, particularly in the management of arthritic conditions and low back pain. The benefits of water are endless, and we use it to improve balance, stability, strength, flexibility, posture, proprioception, for post-surgical care, controlling swelling and in gait training. The buoyancy and hydrostatic pressure properties of the water simultaneously decompress and provide resistance to our joints, allowing for pain free range of motion and movement that may otherwise be limited by pain or swelling on land. Our therapists will work one on one with you, tailoring an exercise program to meet your individual needs and to transition you towards independent management through aquatic workouts.
