Aquatic Therapy Services

Sometimes physical therapy patients cannot tolerate traditional physical therapy treatments. This can be due to pain, weight-bearing issues, or other major symptoms. In these cases, aquatic therapy – performing exercises and stretches in a pool setting – can be an effective and safe alternative. Arthritis, back pain, knee and hip replacement, and fibromyalgia are just a few of the conditions that can be managed through aquatic therapy.

Aquatic therapy at Lawrence General Hospital is comprised of three parts:

  • A comprehensive evaluation by a Physical Therapist to see if aquatic therapy is a good fit.
  • Individualized sessions one to two times a week in our therapeutic pool
  • Progressive exercises and treatments to help you transition back to land-based therapy.

This physical therapy service is available at our Andover/North Andover location. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 978-946-8387.
