The therapeutic value of water has long been acclaimed for its ability to aid in the body’s healing process. Today, the benefits provided by hydrotherapy (including its use in physical conditioning, cardiovascular fitness, and social integration) are becoming widely recognized.
San Joaquin Valley Rehabilitation Hospital offers both aquatic exercise and aquatic physical therapy programs. All of our programs take place in the only therapeutic pool in the Valley. Our warm water therapy pool is maintained between 92-95 degrees, a higher temperature than typical fitness center pools.
Our pool is 4 feet deep with a handrail around the perimeter. A special lift chair is available to assist those in wheelchairs into the pool. Aquatic therapy participants have access to a changing area, shower, and locker facility.
