National PT Month
Boo!!! I’m here to surprise you with some spooktacular news.
First off, it’s national PT month, so big hugs, high fives, and pats on the back to all the extraordinary physical therapists out there changing lives through motion. Second, CTP will be offering pool therapy starting in October.
What’s pool therapy you ask?
Pool therapy is basically the same as land-based physical therapy, but we are able to create an ideal therapeutic environment by utilizing the natural properties only found in water such as buoyancy, resistance, and hydrostatic pressure.
The number one benefit is that it is fun and not perceived as work, thus increasing motivation and compliance. Other benefits include promoting increased exercise intensity, endurance, strength, mobility, muscle relaxation, reduced tone, and spasticity.
Most importantly, along with the benefits listed above, comes a sense of accomplishment, increased self-esteem, independence, and quality of life. Please feel free to call one of our knowledgeable receptionists for more information.
