Aquatic Physical Therapy (Spokane Valley)
Cheryl (62 years old, chronic lower back pain & sciatica)
Cheryl had tried everything to ease the pain in her lower back, as well as her sciatic nerve pain. She even had a fusion and several injections. Following a recent successful injection, she needed a way to improve her flexibility and core strength without re-aggravating her pain. Working in the pool allowed her to do just that. Now she’s able to continue her home program while optimizing the effects of her injection.
Michelle sustained a nasty fracture after she slipped on some ice and fell. Once her surgeon released her for toe-touch weight-bearing (very light), she was also allowed to start walking in the deep end of the pool. Getting a head start on walking again, which she couldn’t have done in the clinic for several more weeks, helped Michelle regain her normal walking pattern weeks in advance. It also made her transition back to walking on land much easier.
Patrick (73 years old, S/P stroke)
Not only did Patrick have a hard time walking and balancing on land, but rapid fatigue and pain also significantly limited his tolerance for land-based PT. But in the water, Patrick was a new man! Overall, he made rapid gains with his walking, balance, fatigue and pain, and he was able to successfully transition all of his gains onto land as well. (Aquatic therapy is also great for people with other balance and fatigue issues, such as people with Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
