DMH Aquatic Therapy allows patients with arthritic joints to exercise pain free. The rehab facilities have warm water pools that unload weight to lesson knee, hip, shoulder and back pain. Patients who are scheduled for a total hip or total knee replacement may benefit from supervised aquatic exercise to decrease pain, improve flexibility and range of motion, and increase strength prior to surgery. Aquatic therapy is excellent in strengthening rotator cuff post surgical or non surgical injury.
DMH provides access to the zero entry pool at the Decatur YMCA for patients that are unable to climb steps in and out of the pools.
