Land-Based Therapy

Because of the healing properties of the water, our patients are able to transition quickly to our land-based program, where we will focus on continuing to reduce pain, improve strength and correct muscle imbalances and body mechanics to get you back to the activities you love doing.

Benefits of Land-based Therapy

Land Therapy provides a reduction in pain through treatments, such as manual therapy, electrical stimulation, ultrasound, cupping, cold laser and traction.

Land-based Therapy also helps to increase function with active exercises such as relaxation, stretching, range of motion, and spinal stabilization activities, balance and coordination exercises, endurance training and functional strengthening (activities that simulate daily activities).

Our patients understand how proper posture and ergonomic principles can improve or eliminate symptoms and, most importantly, how to manage flare-ups and prevent pain from returning. We can help you reach your physical goals so you can live the life you want!

Jen recovers from dizziness after two sessions!

For months, Jen was miserable with dizziness and had difficulty caring for her young child. A doctor diagnosed her with Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo, had her perform some techniques at home, and said the dizziness would subside by itself in a few days.

She said she was pretty hopeless when she came to our facility. After the initial evaluation, symptoms suggested her dizziness was cervicogenic or related to the upper spine, specifically her C2 verterba, rather than the inner ear.

She was treated with manual therapy and educated on land-based stretches and self-mobilization techniques for home. After the second visit, Jen requested to be discharged from therapy because her symptoms resolved and she was able to return to her normal activities.

How land based therapy helped others relieve their pain

Curled over and barely walking, a visit to my doctor was diagnosed as “pinch” nerve. The pain in my legs and lower back was a “10”. Help came quickly with PT by Julie Moon and staff. It was a very painful beginning.

By the third week, pain had subsided to almost nothing due to stretching, strengthening exercise with someone there to help, teach, and encourage me every step of the way. A one to one program with a combination of land and water therapy. The water exercise was exhilarating, enjoyable and pain free.

It’s not a cure, but I have learned to stretch and exercise properly so as not to feel pain again. I can honestly say that after 6 weeks, I can sit, stand, and walk tall. Thanks to the wonderful team who treats you like family.
