Pool therapy is used in instances in which the patient would benefit from being in an environment where reduces the impact of gravity is helpful. For instance it may be used with someone who has had a lower extremity surgery and can’t walk well on the affected joint. It can also be used for conditions such as arthritis, back pain, balance problems and much more. A physical therapist is always guiding the patient in the appropriate exercises.

 

Manuel Therapy




    
   

Manual physical therapy is a specialized form of physical therapy delivered with the hands as opposed to a device or machine. In manual therapy, practitioners use their hands to put pressure on muscle tissue and manipulate joints in an attempt to decrease back pain caused by muscle spasm, muscle tension, and joint dysfunction.
