At Mercy Institute of Rehabilitation, physical therapists are trained in aquatic therapy which is performed on site in our 4 ft. deep chlorinated pool. The pool is kept around 90-95 degrees Fahrenheit to help relax muscle tissues and joints during treatment. A variety of exercises are used to treat sports and work related injuries, neurological conditions, joint replacement and back rehabiliatation programs. The buoyancy effect of water can reduce the amount of weight bearing through joints allowing for improved functional mobility when patients are experiencing inflammation, pain, guarding, muscle spasm, and limited range of motion. Water also has a higher resistance than air and can be used to strengthen muscles as well as gain motor control in weakened muscles after surgery or injuty while protecting the joints.
Manual therapy is skilled hands-on treatment that improves tissue extensibility, joint range of motion, muscle function, tissue relaxation, pain, and soft tissue swelling, inflammation, or movement restriction. Treatment may include moving joints in specific directions and at different speeds, specific muscle stretching, passive movements of the affected body part, or graded movements against therapist resistance to improve muscle activatoin and coordination of movement. Manual theray is used in conjuction with exercise to improve the alignment, quality, muscle force, and effectiveness of the exercise and to manage pain that may limit participation in exercise programs. At MIR we offer a wide variety of manual techniques including mobilizations, manipulations, muscle energy, strain/counter-strain, myofascial release, and others. A careful evaluation will determine if manual theray is an appropriate treatment for your condition.
