An injury, disability or traumatic illness can be one of the most trying experiences for you or a family member to endure. But through a comprehensive course of rehabilitation, most people are able to return to quality, independent lives. Therapy plays an important role in the rehabilitation process. Physical and occupational therapists work with patients to help them regain mobility and function and to reduce or eliminate pain.
Mercy’s Hydroworx 300 underwater treadmill takes advantage of the body’s natural buoyancy in water, helping you perform therapy with less stress on your limbs. Your recovery is quicker and more comfortable. It’s a perfect rehabilitation option following orthopedic surgery or injury.
Our treadmill is located in a private room near the outpatient rehab center. Our therapist or personal trainer will work one-on-one with you to help you get the most out of your session.
The ADA-accessible treadmill is in a glass enclosure and fills with fresh water for each patient. The water level and handrails are customized to your height, weight and tasks to be performed in the session.
Even Mercy Kids can benefit from aquatic therapy.
Meet with your physician to learn if aquatic therapy is right for you.
*A doctor’s order is required for physical therapy appointments.
The HydroWorx 300 is a project funded by the Mercy Health Foundation Fort Scott.
