Healthgrades

Aquatic Therapy at Golden Bear is the premiere center in Stanislaus County that provides an outpatient clinic-based therapy pool in Modesto and Turlock.


Aquatic Physical Therapy

Aquatic physical therapy takes advantage of water's soothing properties to help patients start rehabilitation earlier, move more freely, and resume daily activities sooner. Golden Bear offers aquatic therapy in two of our locations in Stanislaus County that are designed specifically to meet the needs of our patients:

  • Two depths - 3-1/2 and 4-1/2 feet - to allow patients of all heights to get the maximum benefit of the water's buoyancy
  • Temperature of 94 degrees to relax tight muscles and joints and increase blood flow to injured tissues to promote healing
  • Water jets for tight, sore muscles
  • A hydraulic chair lift and built - in steps with railings to ensure safe, easy access
Could You Benefit?

Aquatic physical therapy is typically prescribed for patients who have difficulty performing daily activities because of significant pain or weakness while moving or walking. This type of therapy also is recommended for those who, due to injury or surgery, have been advised to limit movement. Aquatic physical therapy can be especially helpful if you have the following:

  • Neck or back pain
  • Strains, sprains, fractures, or dislocations
  • Injuries from multiple trauma
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or scleroderma
  • Athletic or sports-related injuries

Or, if you're recovering from the following:

  • Spine surgery
  • Joint replacement surgery
