Aquatic Therapy Services

Lawrence General Hospital now offers aquatic therapy services at the Andover/North Andover YMCA. Aquatic therapy consists of treatments and exercises performed in a pool setting for rehabilitation purposes. Often performed in warm water, aquatic therapy is a great option for patients who may not be able to tolerate exercise on land due to weight bearing restrictions, severe weakness, and/or increased pain. One of our certified aquatic therapists, Becky Torres, is pictured left.   

Aquatic therapy can be beneficial for patients with a variety of diagnoses including, but not limited to:
  • Arthritis 
  • Back pain                                                  
  • Fibromyalgia 
  • Stroke 
  • Total hip replacement                            
  • Total knee replacement                        
What will the aquatic therapy program involve at Lawrence General Hospital?
  • An initial comprehensive evaluation by a physical therapist to determine if aquatic therapy is the right fit for you.
  • Individualized treatment 1-2 times per week for 30-45 minute sessions in our therapeutic pool. 
  • A progressive program to transition back to land-based therapy and exercise to improve daily function, mobility, and exercise tolerance. 
For more information or to schedule an appointment, please contact us at 978-946-8387 or visit the Andover/North Andover YMCA.
