Plumas Physical Therapy is the only facility in '" Plumas County to offer aquatic physical therapy to our patients. Aquatic therapy will help restore optimal function and recovery from an injury or illness. American Physical Therapy Association website defines aquatic therapy as "the evidence- based and skilled practice of physical therapy in an aquatic environment by a physical therapist or physical therapy assistant. Aquatic physical therapy includes, but is not limited to, treatment, rehabilita- tion, prevention, health, wellness and fitness of patient/client populations in an aquatic environment with or without the use of assistive, adaptive, orthotic, or supportive devices and equipment." Aquatic physical therapy has been clinically and scientifically proven to be an effective treatment for many musculoskeletal, neurological, cardiopulmonary, and immunological disorders. Typical problems and conditions that can be treated effectively include injuries to the neck, shoulder, low back, knee, ankle, chronic pain, arthritis and fibromyalgia. Post operative patients who had low back surgery, hip/knee/ankle surgeries, including replacements, may also benefit from aquatic therapy as well. LAquatic Therapy can address many of the problems commonly associated with musculoskeletal injury including pain, decreased range of motion, reduced strength, reduced functional mobility, decreased weight bearing and deconditioning. The physical properties of water include buoyancy, hydrostatic pressure, and viscosity. These provide a therapeutic environment that cannot always be achieved with land based exercises. The warm water will promote muscle relaxation, facilitate stretching, and reduce the sensation of pain. Aquatic therapy is a safe environment for injuries and conditions in all stages of rehabilitation. Performing exercise in an aquatic environment is very effective to progress a patients strengthening, weight-bearing, conditioning, endurance, range of motion, gait and balance. At Plumas Physical Therapy, our pool has a depth of four feet with steps on each side to adjust the weight-bearing status. The pool temperature is ninety-two degrees warm. We also have a hydraulic chair lift to help patients get in and out of the pool, if necessary. Our pool is considered an "endless pool" as it has a current that goes up to six miles per hour. We have a variety of pool accessories including noodles, dumbbells, flotation belt, kickboards and webbed gloves to progress the therapeutic exercises. When you begin aquatic physical therapy I will give you specific exercises depending on your musculoskeleta! problem. So how do you know if aquatic therapy is some- thing that you can benefit from? Give me a call or speak with your physician, to see if aquatic physical therapy is right for you. If you are looking to improve your overall function, then maybe aquatic physical therapy is for you. Can you imagine living with less pain and less pain medicine? Then I would recommend speaking with your physician about the possibility of referring you to Plumas Physical Therapy to start aquatic therapy. Most insurance companies will cover aquatic therapy. If you have any further questions regarding what aquatic physical therapy is, give me a call at 283-2202.
