Aquatic Physical Therapy is an effective and more enjoyable environment for rehabilitation. The water is a great place to work on getting back to normal after knee or shoulder injury, back or neck problems, or just about any injury to a joint or muscle.
The moving or standing water provides the necessary resistance while buoyancy and relative weightlessness add to safety. By using aquatic therapy patients regain a higher level of strength and flexibility more quickly, which leads to better outcomes at lower overall costs.
There are no swimming skills needed in order to use the aquatics physical therapy program. We live for aquatics, so if you want to talk about it, or have any questions, call (773) 586-2768 right now and get answers.
It is difficult returning to work after recovery from an injury. This program can help you get ready. The work conditioning program lasts for approximately four to eight weeks.

You will be led through a program designed for you to return to your previous level and you can feel confident returning to work.
ASTYM (Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization) helps break down scar tissue. After surgery, an injury or just plain overuse, your body responds by making scar tissue. This is gret, because scar tissue is strong, it may not be in the right position though. ASTYM has been extremely effective in the treatment of tendonitis.
ASTYM incorporates flexibility, strengthening, and muscle re-education. This process allows the physical therapist to work effectively on a patient in a minimal number of sessions. However, in order for ASTYM to work, you must take an active role in your recovery by maintaining flexibility at home. We will instruct you on what steps to take through the whole process

Industrial Functional Testing
Utilizing DSI Work Solutions Job Function Matching, we accomplish the following:
- Ergonomic and Functional Job Assessment allow job design and worker technique changes which can reduce and eliminate unnecessary stressors/
- Early Intervention: When a worker reports discomfort and indicates a potential injury the Injury Prevention Program assists the worker in avoiding further injury and hastens return to full health without entering the Worker Compensation System.
- When a worker has an injury, medical and therapy interventions start. Lost time from work is reduced through job matching. Injured workers continue to work at tasks that Job Function Testing indicates they are capable of with out risk of further injury.
Back Injury Prevention Programs
The Back Injury Prevention programs help patients lift weights in the correct way. A physical therapist works with a patient to eliminate bad habits and instill good ones. The program offers body mechanics training, body evaluation, repetitive lifting and bending flexibility exercise.
This program helps a patient in getting and staying in shape. This targeted program helps the inactive or underactive prepare for increased physical exertion. This program also includes the patient by teaching the proper way to condition muscles during home exercise. During this program Sportho will employ Stairmaster, treadmills, CYBEX modular and isokinetic systems and an outdoor conditioning court.
