Physical and occupational therapy staff treat adult and pediatric patients in the therapeutic environment of the pool. The natural qualities of water provide support, buoyancy, and resistance which make for an ideal therapy environment. The warm therapeutic temperature of Oleander Rehabilitation's pool is especially soothing for patients with arthritis or low back pain.
Aquatic therapy interventions address the following:
- Improving functional status
- Strengthening and endurance
- Balance and coordination
- Good body mechanics and postural stability
- Enhanced gait (walking)
The pool at Oleander Rehabilitation is salt water, maintained at 88-92 degrees, and has depths of 4 feet and 5 feet. Locker rooms are available adjacent to the pool. A pool lift is available.
