Aquatic Physical Therapy

Exercise, recover from injury, and reduce pain with Aquatic Physical Therapy in Asheville!

Aquatic Physical Therapy, also known as Water Therapy, uses the natural buoyancy of water to reduce the stress on the body and help patients exercise, recover from injury, and reduce pain. The water provides a safe place to perform movements that may be painful, difficult, or impossible on land.
