Did you know that Western Reserve Hospital offers aquatic physical therapy at the Natatorium? Our expert aquatic therapy team treats a variety of diagnoses, including joint replacements, arthritis, neck and back pain, tendon/ligament repairs and sports injuries, to name a few. Because the buoyancy of water decreases joint compression and can support and assist in movement, aquatic therapy allows patients to start therapy sooner and exercise with less pain and discomfort. Aquatic therapy is also beneficial when weight-bearing is limited after fractures or surgical procedures.
Our therapy pool is one of the largest in the region at 1,600 square feet with a warm-water temperature of 90 degrees. You do NOT have to be able to swim to do aquatic therapy, as the deep end is only 4 feet 6 inches and the therapist can get in with you for your personalized therapy session. If you feel you could benefit from aquatic therapy, call us at (330) 926-0384 to schedule an aquatic therapy evaluation. A physician order for aquatic therapy will be necessary prior to scheduling.
