Comprehensive Aquatic Therapy 

Chapter authors just got their first-eyes copies of Comprehensive Aquatic Therapy.

 

And it's HUGE. At 560 pages and 1.5" thick, it's 140 pages bigger than the 2nd edition. It's truly the quintessential guide to aquatic therapy.

All can be obtained in the water with so much less stress on the legs. 

 

That explains the explosion of attention on aquatic plyometrics. See for yourself.

STATISTICS Stats
AQUATICS by the NUMBERS    

Aquatic therapy statistics 

Private practice PTs are over 3x more likely to bill for "aquatic therapy" than private practice OTs. More here  

 

Therex, gait, massage, swallowing treatments and 10 other modalities and procedures are billed more often than aquatic therapy in the outpatient Medicare setting. More here   

 

There are almost 300,000 commercial pools in the USA. If only 5% are ever used for therapy, that would be 15,000 pools, an average of 300 per state. More here.
