Aquatic Therapy

WSPT is at the forefront of rehab technology. Aquatic therapy combines the healing powers of water with the knowledge and skills of a world-class WSPT physical therapist. The Hydroworx® Therapy Pool is the ultimate pool for health and rehabilitation.

Aquatic therapy is an exercise-based therapy to improve relaxation, fitness, wellness and physical rehabilitation. Exercising while partially or fully submerged in water can help improve range of motion and flexibility while putting limited stress on the body.

Hydroworx® combines the healing properties of water with powerful therapy jets, an underwater treadmill and a massage system. The results are decreased pain from arthritis and other chronic pain conditions, enhanced post-surgical recovery and relief from other conditions such as fibromyalgia and Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

After an illness, injury or surgery, a patient is more sensitive to pain. A patient’s movement may be limited and they may not be able to bear weight on the affected area. Patients can rapidly improve mobility, strength and function with the assistance of aquatic therapy. The buoyancy of water supports the body, provides assistance to movement and increases circulation.

The benefits of aquatic therapy include:Capture

  • Increased range of motion and flexibility
  • Decreased swelling
  • Increased circulation
  • Improved muscle strength and tone
  • Increased cardiovascular function and endurance
  • Increased balance and coordination
  • Reduced stress

    The healing powers of water are available to you right here in our convenient Bronx location. The heated Hydroworx® Therapy pool is ideal for patients and athletes looking for comfort, movement, and exercise in any stage of the rehabilitation process. You may be a candidate for aquatic therapy if you suffer from chronic pain or fibromyalgia, neurological conditions including MS, stroke or diabetic neuropathy, recently had surgery or have difficulty with walking or balance.

  • NY Rangers
  • NY Knicks
  • NY Mets
  • Pittsburgh Steelers
  • Philadelphia Phillies
  • US Navy Seals
