Our therapists have worked with the MTBJ physicians extensively to create rehab-specific protocols for each surgical procedure performed. This way you and your physician know with confidence that we’re treating within each physician’s preferences to maximize your successful recovery.

Aquatic therapy can be used for many conditions from post surgical issues, chronic pain, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, to sports injuries. Benefits include decreased percentage of body weight to allow ease of movement, decreased pain and increase ability to perform exercises that would be difficult on land to perform.

MTBJ Physical Therapy utilizes a Hydroworx therapy pool for our rehabilitation needs. Our pool has a variable speed treadmill. This helps our clients begin weight bearing/walking activities after injury. The therapy pool has 2 different water depths for doing range of motion, weight bearing activities, and performing balance/strengthening exercises. Lastly, the pool has 3 adjustable resistance jets to use for increasing strength and endurance while exercising in the water.
