Overlake offers an outpatient aquatic therapy program to individuals recovering from a variety of disorders, including:
- Total joint replacements
- Low-back pain
Aquatic therapy facilitates recovery by increasing joint flexibility with warmth (water temperatures average 90 to 92 degrees) and by decreasing stress on joints with buoyancy. Therapy sessions are conducted by a licensed physical therapist and include one-on-one instruction.
A physician's prescription is required to participate in Overlake's Aquatic Therapy program. You must be able to dress and undress yourself or be assisted by your caregiver. There is a ramp with a handrail to get in and out of the pool. You can park at the facility and use a wheelchair ramp to get to the pool. There are separate men's and women's dressing rooms with showers.
