Pool Therapy 

Beth Weber, LPTA, adjusts the lift chair used to lower and raise patients into
The Bellevue Hospital's hydrotherapy pool.

Aquatic therapy provides an opportunity for patients to exercise without fear of falling and with decreased weight bearing due to the buoyancy provided by the water. The underwater treadmill can help improve gait mechanics, while therapy jets provide resistance to help increase strength and range of motion. Walking, running, or swimming against resistance jets can also help build strength and stamina.

The therapy pool is also equipped with massage jets which can be adjusted to provide a deep penetrating massage or a light gentle massage, depending on each patient¹s individual needs. Aquatic therapy can also help decrease swelling, improve proprioception, decrease muscle spasms, and increase blood flow. There are some contraindications to aquatic therapy including fever, rash, incontinence, open wounds, incisions, communicable disease, and others.

The Rehabilitation Department is equipped with a Hydroworx Therapy Pool that is 3 to 4.5 feet deep and maintained at a therapeutic 93 degrees. Pool is also equipped with a lift chair for easy pool access.

In-pool assistance is available for patients if necessary.
