Aquatic therapy is a type of physical therapy treatment that takes place in water, generally in an in-clinic pool. It is also commonly known as hydrotherapy or aquatic rehabilitation and has soothing properties that can benefit you if you are seeking pain relief and relaxation.
Physical therapy generally consists of three important phases: pain relief, strengthening, and functional integration. Some people are apprehensive toward physical therapy because they believe it will hurt them; however, the opposite is usually true.
One of the greatest aspects of manual therapy is that it is non-invasive. It also doesn’t require any harmful medications. Instead, our physical therapists use a variety of techniques that help move your tendons, ligaments, and joints in ways that relieve pain and promote healing.

I came to Acceleration to improve my running skills. Surprisingly I left a completely different person, and not to mention an athlete! I have more drive as well as all-around motivation in everything that I do. There were times when I did not think I’d be able to keep pushing and keep running at Acceleration, but with the kind and encouraging words from James, I was able to accomplish as well as finish anything. Acceleration doesn’t just improve your body’s shape physically, but emotionally as well. Giving you immense drive to push through anything & everything life throws at you! Thanks James!
I’ve been a Wellness Member continuously since November 2007. I stress “continuously” as this has been the only “gym” membership that I have stuck with. Why? The staff is friendly, helpful, and encouraging. Also, being older and less in shape, being a member of TherapyWorks Wellness Center is not as intimidating as being around the members of some of the larger gyms. I have increased my stamina and my strength, noticing a large increase in my daily activities.
Working out at a gym can be very expensive so I workout at TherapyWorks because it is very affordable. All of the people are really nice.
I came to the Wellness Center via Physical Therapy at TherapyWorks. I already knew many of the staff when I started working out. They were helpful, friendly and provided a safe environment in which I feel quite comfortable. Since starting at the Wellness Center about 16 months ago, I’ve seen a dramatic increase in my fitness. I have more endurance, stamina, and strength. I have the confidence to try new things as well. My friends tell me I even walk differently. My first garden workout this spring was a bit easier, too. And the problem that first brought me in for therapy is now much improved.
Many thanks to the team of folks that worked with me to work on eliminating pain and regaining range of motion after my injury. Staff was great and pleasant to work with. I couldn’t have done it without you! Thanks so much.
