We are pleased to announce Aquatic Physical Therapy is now available in Rochelle in partnership with the Flagg-Rochelle Community Park District at The REC Center. Aquatic physical therapy is an individual, one-on-one therapy program performed in the pool at The REC to achieve therapeutic results. Using the resistance of water, aquatic physical therapy offers a comfortable unweighted environment to achieve full function regardless of the injury. Using the reduction of gravity in the warm salt water pool, it offers training and strengthening exercises that will increase joint range of motion and muscle strength, promote healing, and improve balance. This type of therapy is ideal and beneficial for people with conditions such as neck, shoulder, back, or knee pain, neurological impairments, balance and gait disorders, post-surgical rehabilitation, fibromyalgia and arthritic conditions, post-COVID and long-COVID recovery, and general strengthening & conditioning.
Aquatic physical therapy is in partnership with the Flagg-Rochelle Community Park District held at The REC in Rochelle in their salt water pool which uses lower levels of chlorine, reducing eye and skin irritation. No membership is required. Steps inside the pool allow for easy entry and exit, and a lift chair is available. Swimming is not required to participate in Aquatic Physical Therapy.
A physician’s prescription is not required for aquatic physical therapy or other physical therapy treatment. For more information about aquatic physical therapy or to schedule an appointment with Janet, please call us at 815.562.3299.
