Our Aquatic Therapy Program is a huge driver to our business and unlike our competition, utilizes rare and unique underwater treadmill systems to achieve superior results. With HydroWorx you get the Fastest Rehab and Superior Conditioning. After any type of injury or surgery, increasing your patient or athlete's mobility while still maintaining conditioning is a top priority. By taking advantage of the body's buoyancy in water, the advanced technology of HydroWorx's fitness and physical therapy pools eliminates 20% to 100% of a person's body weight. As a result, patients or athletes who are unable to exercise on land can achieve immediate rehabilitative results while carrying as little as 0% of their body weight underwater. When exercising in a physical therapy pool, hydrostatic pressure, water temperature and resistance combine to enhance cardiovascular stamina, muscle strength, and flexibility and drive early range of motion gains during post surgery recovery. Gait training in a low-impact environment allows for earlier replication of proper ambulatory biomechanics and reduces the accumulated damage of land exercise. Read below to learn why HydroWorx's physical therapy pool technology is your best choice for the fastest rehab and gravity free conditioning of your patients and athletes.

Terrapin and Ripple Physical Therapy's clinics both feature Hydroworx pools to offer you the fastest rehabilitation possible. With the ability to adjust the pool's water level for each patient, 20% to 100% of your body's weight becomes buoyant, easing stress on your joints and muscles. Your muscles will grow stronger through aquatic therapy, as water provides greater resistance than air. Patients who have difficulty exercising on land can achieve immediate results while carrying as little as 0% of their body weight underwater.
