Aquatic Physical Therapy is the skilled practice of physical therapy in an aquatic environment. Therapists at Soul PT are able to offer Aquatic PT in heated salt water pool within the Beverly Athletic Club.

Aquatic PT is especially helpful for those with various forms of arthritis including osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, rheumatoid arthritis. It is also patients with lupus, chronic pain syndromes such as fibromyalgia. Post operative patients can weight bear or use their affected limb earlier on in the rehab process in water.
