Ayrsley Town Rehabilitation offers first aquatic therapy pain relief and therapy program in the Steele Creek section of Charlotte, NC.
(Steele Creek) – On June 1, 2010, Ayrsley Town Rehabilitation started offering aquatic physical therapy to the healthcare consumers of southwest Charlotte.
“Aquatic therapy is a great way to decrease pain,” states Chris Stulginsky, PT of Ayrsley Town Rehabilitation.
“It is the closest thing we can get to being weightless, it unweights the joints and allows people to do more and work on true solutions for their pain relief. Because they are able to move more easily, clients strengthen their muscles to take pressure off of the joints over time.”
Myrtle Williams, a client who participates in the aquatic program agrees. “I can do more in the pool then I can on the land, it helps me move around better without the pain. I can exercise without soreness the next day.”
Stulginsky continues on, “The aquatic program assists us in providing comprehensive pain solutions. It is an added plus to our already established Back Pain, Fibromyalgia, Orthopaedic Rehab and Prehab for Pregnancy Programs. Though it varies from plan to plan, in most cases the therapy is covered by health insurance, including Medicare.”
Stulginsky adds, “The aquatic program is another component to assist us in addressing the pain and rehabilitation needs of the people of south Charlotte and the Lake Wylie corridor.”
