Trade Winds is Now Offering In-Clinic Aquatic Therapy!

Utilizing the unique properties of water (temperature, depth, pressure, currents) and the weight/mobility of the human body, aqua-therapy is performed one-on-one with a professionally trained therapist in accordance with the needs of individual clients.

Who Can Benefit From Aquatic Therapy?

One of the reasons aquatic therapy can be beneficial to patients is because the water absorbs most of the pressure our body weight typically puts onto our joints. By conducting physical therapy in the water, the body becomes more buoyant and decreases the amount of stress on your joints.

Aquatic therapy is typically used for patients who:

  • Are not allowed full weight bearing but need to work on walking
  • Need to work on jumping or landing but are unable to tolerate high impact activities
  • Are recovering from surgery
  • Are experiencing acute low back pain and cannot tolerate standing and walking
  • Are athletes and need to break down sport specific drills in a more controlled environment

Aqua Therapy has an array of benefits that separate it from traditional PT practices.

Dulled Sense Of Touch

When under constant pressure from water, the nervous system will automatically dull the sense of touch and muscle pain, making it easier to stretch your muscles to their full rang of motion.


The natural viscosity and resistance water provides forces you to move more slowly, allowing the brain to process signals from your muscles more thoroughly, which can play a large role in rebuilding muscle memory.


Hydrostatic Pressure

Acting like a compression bandage for the entire body, hydrostatic pressure helps to relieve chronic muscle aches when a person is submerged neck-deep.

Improved Circulation

Improved blood flow to the limbs helps promote healing and compensate for poor circulation in those with weak heart muscles by getting oxygen-rich blood to reach the periphery.
