Our Aquatic Therapy Pool

Our HydroWorx 500 aquatic therapy pool is a great alternative to traditional land-based physical therapy.  HydroWorx is a world leader in therapy pool equipment.  By using the body's buoyancy in water, HydroWorx's advanced technology eliminates 20% to 100% of a person's body weight.  As a result, patients who are unable to exercise on land can achieve immediate rehabilitative results while carrying as little as 0% of their body weight underwater. Aquatic therapy has many benefits, including minimized joint stress, reduced swelling and a large reduction of the pain often associated with land-based rehabilitation. 

Heated at a very comfortable 90 degrees, our aquatic therapy pool relaxes muscles almost immediately, allowing for increased range of motion with less pain.  Our pool is one of the only aquatic therapy pools in the State of Connecticut to include an underwater treadmill and it has been acclaimed by our patients.  Our pool also houses an underwater camera so therapists can monitor activity and adjust patient activity as needed.  Learn more about the benefits of aquatic physical therapy here.
