The Wonders of Water:
Aquatic Therapy For Rehabilitation
Aquatic therapy at Total Performance Physical Therapy is a different experience! With our private, heated pools and private locker rooms you can expect the best results without having to share a pool or a locker room with anyone else! Aquatic therapy has been proven to decrease pain, improve function, speed up recovery and prevent injury. The heated environment (97 degrees!) decreases the weight on sore and aching joints allowing for strengthening of muscles, decreasing pain and decreasing swelling. Insurance covers aquatic therapy and you do not need a prescription to get started.
Our skilled professional therapists know just how to use the water to help you move better, get stronger, recover from injuries, find relief from aches and pains, and achieve a higher overall quality of life. Come to us for rehabilitation, and after completing our personalized aquatic therapy program, you’ll leave us not just fully recovered — but in better condition than before your injury.
Since we’re located in the suburbs of Philadelphia, it makes us an ideal choice for aquatic therapy patients in:
- North Wales
- East Norriton
There’s no better place for aquatic therapy anywhere in the region. Contact us to request an appointment today!

The Benefits of Aquatic Therapy
When it comes to injury rehabilitation, therapy for back pain, relief from achy joints, or a whole host of physical ailments, aquatic therapy is a great equalizer because it can benefit people of all ages and fitness levels. Water therapy is also a holistic approach to wellness because it helps strengthen the body and relax the mind, and it’s been a staple of health care all over the globe since ancient times, when the Greeks and Romans retreated to hot springs to relax.
Aquatic therapy has obviously come a long way since then, and at Total Performance Physical Therapy, we utilize the water to help patients get back in shape and meet the demands of the modern world — whether it’s returning to an athletic pursuit after an injury or simply increasing mobility with age.
Some of the wonderful benefits of pool therapy include:
- Improved flexibility
- Better balance and coordination
- Increased strength
- Improved cardiovascular capacity
- Reduced stress
The feeling of weightlessness in the water is an essential element of aquatic therapy. Free from the effects of gravity, the water allows the body to move more fluidly and with more stability than it could on land. Joints and muscles that ache and restrict movement while moving on land are soothed by the water. While water provides natural resistance that’s important for building or rebuilding strength, it has a relatively low impact on the body.
Water therapy doesn’t simply involve floating around effortlessly. We put in the work necessary to get results. Our therapists know how to get the best out of every client, blending patience and compassion with a real sense of purpose.
Aquatic therapy can improve:
- Knee pain
- Hip pain
- Post surgery
- Back Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Ankle Pain
- Total Joint Replacements
- Difficulty with walking
- Athletes who want to get back into the game faster
- And many more!!
Whether you come to us in search of relief for back pain or other chronic conditions, or you’re trying to return to your former lean, mean, athletic self after surgery, your full rehabilitation is our mission.
