"Patients readily find they can move more freely in the water than on the land. They subsequently are more compliant with aquatic therapy and have a greater sense of accomplishment. The real value of Integrated Therapy, LLC is that the therapists motivate our patients to continue their exercise program by participating in aquatic classes after the initial prescribed course is completed. Improving strength and mobility then becomes a life time endeavor, instead of a short sighted six week goal."
