How Aquatic Therapy Gave Me My Health Back

I have nothing but praise for aquatic therapy and how it helped me get healthy again!

Aquatic therapy with Rock Valley Physical Therapy helped me get back to health by letting me do land-based exercises in slow-motion adaptations. The team recommended I try aquatic therapy as after land-based therapy started affecting my atrial fibrillation. Being in the pool allowed me to still do all my stretching, which meant I could get the most out of all my therapy sessions and get back to health.

I also noticed that it was easier for me to complete a full exercise regimen in the water as opposed to on land, where I couldn’t seem to do all the sequences. In the pool, I can do them all! This gave me the ability to get the exercise I needed to get back to health quickly.

After the team recommended aquatic therapy, I was surprised by how effective it was. I went a total of six times for my lower back and the arthritis in my knee. For my back, at least, I felt the benefits after just two visits—I felt so much better! My knee pain comes and goes, so consistently going to aquatic therapy helps release and relieve the pain. Even once my therapy sessions ended with Rock Valley Physical Therapy, I joined a local Y so I could continue the exercises I learned in the warm therapy pool. That’s how effective they were!

The physical therapists showed me how to do the exercises properly, explained why they wanted me to do them that way and corrected me when I was wrong. They also gave me a waterproof worksheet to take to the pool with me when I do exercises by myself. In fact, when I am at the pool on my own, I get asked a lot what I am doing and what kinds of exercises Rock Valley Physical Therapy has me doing. I always share my experience and encourage them to seek out aquatic therapy for their issues.

I have benefitted so much from aquatic therapy at Rock Valley Physical Therapy, and I would recommend it to anyone—especially anyone with arthritis or who needs slower, more controlled movements. They were friendly, easy to work with and focused on bringing me out of the pain.The full experience has been great, from the people to the therapy to the results!
