  • Aquatic Therapy

    Aquatic therapy offers an alternative to conventional therapy and is appropriate for a wide range of conditions. Buoyancy, resistive forces of water and the effect of hydrostatic pressure are all principles that make treatment in the water a safe and effective rehabilitation tool.

    The Centura Health Center for Therapy at Parker Adventist Hospital is proud to feature aquatic therapy featuring a SwimEx pool, the same pool used by athletes with the Denver Broncos, Colorado Rockies and U.S. Olympic Training Center. The temperature of this pool remains at a therapeutic 88 to 94 degrees Fahrenheit to allow for optimal comfort, relaxation and rehabilitation. The pool's individualized size makes it safe and comfortable for patients. 

    Diagnoses appropriate for aquatic therapy include, but are not limited to:

    • Post-surgical spine or extremity fractures
    • Extremity sprain, muscle or tendon injuries
    • Strokes
    • Peripheral neuropathy
    • Fibromyalgia
    • Parkinson's disease
    • Back pain
    • Lymphedema
    • Sports-related vocal cord dysfunction
  • Cognitive Therapy

    Changes in thinking skills can affect the ability of a person to function in everyday life. Tasks such as preparing meals, driving, or managing finances and medications can become difficult. Functioning at work or school or in social situations can also become impaired.

    Causes for these changes may include strokes, brain tumors, brain infections, seizures, concussions, motor vehicle accidents, falls, dementia, medication side effects, or diseases such as Parkinson's or Multiple sclerosis.

    Those at risk for developing cognitive impairments may experience the following difficulties:

    • Concentrating or paying attention
    • Remembering things such as appointments, medications or conversations
    • Following directions
    • Recalling words
    • Getting lost or easily confused
    • Processing and integrating information at a normal speed, especially in stressful situations
    • Organizing and sequencing tasks
    • Managing more than one thing at a time
    • Making decisions 
    • Problem solving
    • Sensitivity to light, noise and distractions
    • Delayed response time while thinking, speaking, acting or reading
    • Staying on task and seeing projects through to completion
