(206) 230-9613Robert Tutland R.P.T., began offering a therapeutic and rehabilitative pool program in 1987. Since that time it has become a well established and very successful form of physical therapy treatment. This program has incorporated the properties of buoyancy and resistance with warm water (90 degrees) to help diminish the effects of an injury or disease. The program provides participants with an individualized exercise program targeted specifically to rehabilitate their injury or disease.
Progressive aquatic exercise will facilitate our patients’ ability to gain full functional mobility and coordination. Specialized pool therapy equipment is available, and when used in conjunction with a weight free environment, patients are able to increase strength and endurance at a faster rate. Our program is unique in that we offer a warm water environment which makes it easier and more pleasant for rehabilitation. This program is supervised and instructed by experienced physical therapy professionals, provides a positive emotional outlet, and gives patients the opportunity to have fun.
