Aquatic therapy helps to decrease pain, swelling and impact on joints.  It works to increase range of motion, joint health and lean muscle mass; and provides for earlier introduction of activities such as running and jumping. 

Although anyone can benefit from aquatic therapy, it is extremely helpful for persons with low back pain, total joint recipients, those with arthritic joints, and sprains. 

Please consult your physician to discuss your options for aquatic therapy. 


Lymphedema is a protein rich swelling of an area of the body, caused by fluid back up. Lymphedema can occur anywhere in the body, often seen in legs, chest, arms and neck. 

Symptoms of lymphedema include feelings of fullness, tightness, or heaviness in the affected area (arm, leg, trunk, face, neck or genitals); an aching or discomfort in the affected area; pitting or indentations in the skin. 

The goal of therapy is to reduce and stabilize or prevent symptoms of lymphedema.  We strive to maximize your independence and self-management. 

Call your Doctor if:

  • You have a new or worsening area of swelling
  • You have redness, pain, or warmth in the affected area
  • Your compression garments no longer fit properly or are painful to wear
  • You have a fever lasting more than 2 days or is greater than 100 degrees
