The Aquatherapy Program
Developed by Harmeling Physical Therapy and Sports Fitness, Inc., the Aquatherapy program is designed to give patients the option of enjoying
the various benefits of exercise in a gravity-reduced environment. The
water allows earlier movement of joints and this is the key to a speedy recovery.
How do I get started?
We start with a thorough evaluation performed by a trained physical
therapist. Then we design a personalized aquatherapy program to help
you increase your range of motion, strength, gait, and cardiovascular
fitness. You will be seen 2-3 times a week working out in our state-of-
the-art waveless pool. We will teach you a home exercise program as
well. Finally, once you've finished your PT, you will be able to continue
your program at our facility by purchasing pool passes.
Aquatherapy is great for:
- Low back pain
- Joint replacement and reconstruction
- Spinal surgery
- Fractures where weight-bearing is restricted
- Shoulder surgery
- Balance and movement disorders

"I walked in on two crutches; a hip replacement on the left and a rebuilt femur on the right. My very patient therapist started with gentle exercises in the pool. Between his caring professional attitude and the soothing nature of the water I came to look forward to my pool sessions. I made great progress and my surgeon was very impressed. I cannot say enough about the great service Harmeling Physical Therapy provides and I tell this to anyone who will listen."
