Absolutely fantastic experience. The underwater treadmill is an amazing therapy for anyone.
I am very happy to report that within a month of treatment I felt some immediate improvement and was able to increase my exercise level by at least 50 percent without increased pain. I loved walking and gradually running on the treadmill in the pool and doing my exercises in the water along with dry needling. By three months of treatment, I was pain-free and had a greater range of mobility.
As I have aged, arthritis has attacked my body leaving me to the point I could barely walk due to severe low back, hip, knee, and ankle pain. I have been advised surgery is the option for me to get better, but I chose another route. I was referred to Advantage Physical Therapy to try conservative treatment. I have been doing aquatic therapy including walking on their underwater treadmill, and this group of therapists have made more of a positive impact on my mobility, pain levels, and general function than any place I have ever been. They have kept me out of surgery and I attribute my longevity and improved life quality to Advantage.
