All exercises begin with firing of transverse abdominis (TA) and the Stabilizer monitors this position.
Patients sometimes do too much during their first visit and are sore the next day. Be conservative that first day.
Evidence-based research: There are several studies on the beneficial effects of aquatic therapy on those with low back pain.
When standing chest deep in water, the body is 80% weightless, bearing only 20% of its weight. This weightlessness helps with exercises and movements that could otherwise be too difficult.
Because the water is a thicker medium than air, by moving in the water the amount of resistance from the water can range from 4 to 44 times that of air. Using the resistance of the water in exercise is like exercising with weights or machines on land, but safer.
In chest deep water, approximately 90% of your body weight is buoyant, therefore you really are bearing only 10% of your weight when you exercise. Exercise in the water is much safer an your joints and muscles; virtually stress-free.
The water temperature is the same all year long. You do not need to contend with the variability of the elements; heat, cold, rain, snow, etc.
The hydrostatic pressure; the pressure of the water on your body, joints, muscles and internal organs, massages and comforts your body while you exercise. You never feel fatigued.

I am very pleased with my treatment here. Chris, Chad and Buena were very professional and knowledgeable about my injuries and were able to guide me through a process to help my recovery once I have surgery.
I’ve loved my experience here. The staff was MOST EXCELLENT. Buena and Rodney were mostly my helpers. Both were attentive, respectful, and professional. You have a staff that you should certainly be proud of. Thank you for helping me. I appreciate everything you’ve done to help get me back to my Life.
I almost didn’t come back after the first week of therapy because the pain was so bad but I’m so glad I did. My experience was so good with all of the therapy assistants. I felt they were very caring.
It was amazing that I walked in with such pain and weakness that I thought I was going to be on disability and the next step was a wheelchair. After 18 weeks of work with the trainers, I feel that I have a new expectation that I can do anything.
Fantastic, I would recommend it to anyone and a nice friendly caring atmosphere. They will help you with what ever your needs are.
Very professional and kind people who answered each question I had throughout the Low Back Program
