The Therapy Networks Kempsville location offers aquatic therapy to our patients to gently rehabilitate injuries or substitute land based exercises. Our 20 x 10 foot salt water pool is kept at a therapeutic 92º F to help increase blood flow to injured areas.
The road to recovery will be much smoother and swifter for patients who enrolled in our Aquatic Therapy program. Aquatic Therapy provides buoyancy to reduce the stresses of weight on the body compared to on-land. Exercises using water resistance instead of weights further reduces pressure on the joints and helps reduce swelling.
