I would like to say how grateful I am for such caring staff. I look forward to going every time. I’m much closer to my goal. This is the place where they care about their patients and the therapists love their job.

I chose Therapy Unlimited because they offer Aquatic Therapy in a very large pool that I can really move around in. I am in my 80's now and needed to work on my balance and overall strength. I've been to other facilities for water therapy but nothing compares to the strengthening I feel from walking long laps in Therapy Unlimited's pool!

Though almost 20  years old, the following article from WebMD is still highly relevant as it pertains to the multitude of benefits aquatic therapy or "water therapy" can have for patients with various disabilities including those that aren't always limited to physical ability such as cognitive issues like dementia and Alzheimer's.  In general, aqua therapy may improve:

  • balance
  • muscle strength & flexibility
  • mobility & pain management

Water therapy may also help patients:

  • Relax
  • Soothe aching muscles
  • Reduce uneasiness patients can feel while walking on land thereby decreasing risk of falls
  • Water’s buoyancy is rejuvenating, increases energy & flexibility
  • Naturally reduce swelling in lower extremities such as legs, ankles, and feet while increasing circulation
