This supplemental service is provided for a short-term and intensive duration to take advantage of treatment strategies that are exclusive to water. These include, but are not limited to, AquaStretch, ambulation training, partial weight bearing activities, buoyancy supported manual techniques, breath control, pain relief and sensory integration. To comply with professional practice standards, clinic-based sessions are required periodically to determine baseline status and measure progress towards functional goals. This also allows therapy providers to determine the ongoing benefit of therapy in the aquatic medium. Short-term intensive sessions are shown to maximize therapeutic benefit and facilitate a return to land-based activities/services. Most patients, without contraindications, can benefit from and participate in the aquatic medium as a supplement to land-based therapy. Pool-based appointments occur at the James J. Harris Family Branch YMCA. The pool has many great features that are accessible during treatment sessions, such as heated water, a variety of entry methods (stairs, ladder, graduated or zero tide entry), a vortex/whirlpool to allow movement with the flow of water for assistance and against the flow of water for resistance and a water wheelchair for transitions in and out of the water.
