SERVICES » Pool/Aquatic Therapy
PTOR was the first therapy group in Roanoke to appreciate the benefits of the therapeutic use of a swimming pool to help restore an individual’s strength, endurance, balance, and safety. The physical properties of the water reduces the painful effects of leg and back joint compression due to arthritis while resisting the muscle functioning to allow effective strengthening of the core and extremity muscles.
PTOR has on-site pools at both our Vinton and Roanoke offices for our adult and pediatric patients needing aquatic therapy. Our physical and occupational therapists often work in the pool with our clients and we progress them to the point that they can continue their specific pool programs at other facilities.
