MedStar NRH Rehabilitation Network Dundalk now offering
Aquatic Therapy

We are proud to announce that aquatic therapy is now being offered at MedStar NRH Rehabilitation Network Dundalk. 
Benefits of aquatic therapy include:
  •   Buoyancy of water helps to support the patient, thus decreasing the amount of weight bearing through the joints. 
  • Viscosity of water allows you to easily alter the resistance of each exercise, and in combination with the buoyancy it allows a patient to strengthen muscles with decreased joint stress. 
  • Hydrostatic pressure of the water can both decrease the swelling in joints as well as increase joint proprioception. 
  • The warmth of the water helps to relax muscles and increase blood flow to injured areas.
  • Some conditions that benefit from aquatic therapy include: osteoarthritis, low back pain, sprains and strains, post-operative conditions and chronic pain.
To schedule an appointment at MedStar NRH Rehabilitation Network Dundalk, please call 410.650.2145. For more information on this location, click here.

Aquatic therapy is also offered at the following locations:
