Aquatic physical therapy at Asheville Family Fitness

Aquatic Physical Therapy

We offer one-on-one Aquatic Physical Therapy in a safe environment with a licensed Physical Therapist or Physical Therapist Assistant. You’ll experience the benefits of our 92 to 93 degree water to:

  • Relax tight / guarded muscles to improve motion and flexibility
  • Facilitate core muscle activation, strength, and endurance
  • Decrease pain sensitivity
  • Increase circulation
  • Help even the most stubborn areas with our hands-on manual therapy techniques – in the water!

The natural buoyancy of water reduces the pull of gravity, so there’s significantly less compression force on joints.

Plus we can adjust the amount of resistance from the water propulsion units easily and remotely right from the pool: low setting for balance, core muscle activation, or gait training; medium to high for endurance training or aerobic conditioning – for a truly custom experience tailored to individual needs.

And don’t worry, it is not necessary to know how to swim!

  • Railings and steps make entry into and exit from the pool possible for all mobility levels
  • Four-foot depth ensures safe, secure treatments; six-foot section allows for deep water flotation for spine and joint decompression
