You may have been advised by your doctor or surgeon to begin aquatic therapy. The thought of having to rehabilitate an injury or surgery in a cold, overcrowded pool might be daunting. That’s why Boston Sports Medicine offers aquatic therapy in Allston, MA with a state of the art, private, heated Hydroworx salt-water pools.
Aquatic therapy has been used for centuries. Though this form of therapy has evolved from bathing in a hot mineral spring to a $75,000 salt-water pool with an aquatic treadmill, the benefits remain the same.
