My experience with Therapy Unlimited has been exceptionally helpful and rewarding. When I first began, I was skeptical about how much help this would be. All total, I have recovered a great deal physically and mentally 110%. Thanks.

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
