Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute offers aquatic therapy to both inpatients and outpatients, as well as a variety of exercise programs for individuals and groups.
Aquatic therapy uses the physical properties of water to help patients with a variety of medical conditions heal and enhance their performance.
Patients who may benefit are those with acute or chronic injuries or conditions such as arthritis, back and neck injuries, head injuries, chronic pain, stroke, spinal cord injury, joint replacement, orthopedic injuries and neurological disorders.
After a thorough evaluation by a physical therapist, each patient receives an exercise program tailored to meet his/her individual goals and needs.
Therapists instruct and supervise participants until they demonstrate understanding of the exercises. Some patients may start their therapy in the pool, then progress to land-based therapy if recommended by their therapists as their tolerance to exercise increases.
After six to eight sessions, participants are discharged and are encouraged to continue their exercise program independently at a Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute aquatic therapy site or at their local health club.
