Aquatic therapy is offered on-site at KVH in a relaxed, soothing environment. The 24′ x 18′ warm water therapy pool remains at a comfortable 92 degrees and individualized therapy is created to address a wide variety of orthopedic, spine, and neurological problems for clients of any age.
Participation is by physician approval and patients are evaluated by a licensed physical therapist and supervised by licensed personnel.
Aquatic equipment is provided for each patient according to their individualized plan. We can accommodate varying levels of fitness and work with patients that may not be comfortable in a pool environment.

Aquatic therapy is not for everyone. People with cardiac disease should not participate in aquatic therapy. Those who have fevers, infections, or bowel/bladder incontinence are also not candidates for aquatic therapy. Talk with your physician before beginning an aquatic therapy program.
