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!
