• Aquatic Therapy Services

  • Exclusively offered at the Somers Clinic, and often used in conjunction with land-based treatment, aquatic therapy provides a unique approach for patients with orthopedic, neurological, or sport related injuries. With the addition of two underwater treadmills and multiple high definition cameras to help with gait analysis, therapy in our warm water pool allows the patient to do more exercise with less pain and fatigue due to the water’s buoyancy and support. Averaging between 92-94 degrees Fahrenheit, the water in our therapy pool helps to relax muscles, increase circulation, and offers full support for sore limbs.

    Swimming ability is not necessary in order to participate in our warm water therapy pool. Aquatic therapy is instructed by a Physical Therapist or Occupational Therapist who is in the water providing one-on-one service. If you are interested in this program, please call the Rehabilitation Department at (262) 551-4700.
