Aquatic Therapy

In our Aquatic Therapy in McAllen and Weslaco, we use water to assist patients with pain reduction, joint motion, inflammation, and general strengthening.



Our expert Aquatic therapy in McAllen consists of an exercise program that is performed in the water under the care of a Licensed Physical Therapist. This type of therapy uses the physical properties of water to assist the patient with pain reduction, general strengthening, improving joint motion using gentle resistance or assistance, and gentle compression to areas with inflammation. The pool is a great place to facilitate relaxation while still being supported by the water. Aquatic therapy reduces the weight put through the spine and joints for improved walking, movement, and strengthening. This precise therapy treatment is highly recommended for osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, back pain, fibromyalgia, and other chronic pain and debilitating conditions.
