Aquatic Therapy

SoCal Physical Therapy is one of the only true providers of aquatic therapy in the Santa Clarita Valley.  We have full access to both indoor and outdoor heated pool facilities where we take advantage of the benefits that aquatic therapy provides. 

Aquatic therapy uses the physical properties of water to assist in patient healing and exercise performance.  The buoyancy, viscosity and resistance of water helps reduce the pressure on joints, promotes tissue elasticity, strengthens muscles, and relaxes muscles to promote circulation and blood flow to injured areas.

At SoCal Physical Therapy, aquatic therapy has improved range of motion (ROM), flexibility, strength, core and trunk stability, and balance for all our clients, including those with sports-related injuries, post-surgical intervention, occupational injuries, and chronic pain.  Our geriatric clients, in particular, have made substantial progress in improving their normal walking and overall balance.  The warm water often times minimizes the fear of injury.
