Gundersen Sports Medicine's Aquatic Program assists with recovery from a variety of health issues including injury or surgery and arthritic pain. Aquatic physical therapy allows you to exercise with less stress to joints and healing tissues.
It can assist with regaining range of motion, improving strength, decreasing pain, facilitating overall mobility and improving/maintaining cardiovascular conditioning.
Our facility utilizes a Swim-Ex pool, which features removable floor platforms to adjust the depth of water for patient comfort and/or exercise modification. Patients enter the pool by either ladder or hydraulic lift. Current flow can be adjusted to a top water speed of 6.5 mph for additional resistance to exercises and allow for stationary swimming/running.
