About Aquatic Therapy
Norwood Performance Therapy features on-site aquatic therapy capabilities with the HydroWorx 350 Pool and Treadmill. The HydroWorx pool is designed to help patients safely accelerate rehabilitation with less pain. The HydroWorx underwater treadmill is integrated seamlessly into the pool floor and takes advantage of the body’s buoyancy in water and can reduce the amount of body weight during a physical therapy session. This, in conjunction with therapeutic warm water, can allow for decreased joint compression and pain.
For aquatic therapy appointments, private changing and lockers are available. All patients should bring a towel and wear appropriate bathing or similar garmets.
