Aquatic Therapy as a Pain Reducer

Aquatic Therapy as a Pain Reducer

Imagine a pain so intense that you begin to think that dying is a better option than living.  That’s the way Carolyn, 68, a rehab patient at Geisinger HealthSouth, Danville, Pennsylvania, felt.

Carolyn’s severe abdominal and thoracic discomfort as a result of a lumbosacral sprain had pushed her almost to the breaking point.

With the help of Tammy Frey, a member of the Geisinger HealthSouth team, Carolyn began a program that included aquatic therapy in a HydroWorx pool.  Over time, she became pain free.  Now, Carolyn credits the HydroWorx physical therapy pool and aquatic therapy for giving her back her life!
