California Pacific Medical Center provides aquatic therapy pools and guided exercise sessions for patients in need of rehabilitation for a chronic illness or injury. Patients suffering from musculoskeletal pain and arthritis, or those who have difficulty with weight bearing exercises, may benefit from this type of water-based rehabilitation.
Aquatic therapy pools are available at both the Davies Campus and Pacific Campus. Aquatic therapy, also called hydrotherapy, helps improve mobility and maintain muscle strength by using water resistance instead of weights to exercise your muscles. This type of therapy helps take excess pressure of your joints, allowing you to perform low-impact movements.
Our Arthritis Aquatics Program is an exercise program designed to improve range of motion and muscle strength in people with arthritis. Each class consists of a series of exercises for the trunk, shoulders, elbows, wrists, fingers, hips, knees, ankles and toes, as well as walking and other endurance activities.
