Enhance Your Mobility

Swimming is a great way to get aerobic exercise, and an excellent activity to enhance your mobility. It is a good introduction to physical therapy for those who have difficulty with weight bearing exercises. Manual Orthopedic Physical Therapy is proud to offer aquatic therapy in Chula Vista at Crunch Fitness, Eastlake’s Pool to a variety of patients.

Aquatic therapy can reduce stress and discomfort while engaging in exercises specially designed by your physical or occupational therapist. The benefits of completing physical therapy exercises in the water as opposed to land-based therapies include:

  • Decreasing the load that is put on joints
  • Minimizing muscle pain, joint pain, and muscle spasms
  • Facilitating earlier movement of targeted limbs
  • Facilitating earlier strength and endurance
  • Providing natural traction without the fear of falling
  • Promoting relaxation

No matter what your age or physical challenges, MOPT can customize an aquatic therapy plan just for you. Give us a call to speak directly with a physical or occupational therapist in one of our offices, or request an appointment by filling out our online form.

What Our Patients Are Saying

Michael Stein & Joe Bailey are the best! They are not only really nice guys, but exceptional therapists. Their organization is, without a doubt, the best in the Chula Vista area.

Hands down the best physical therapy facility and treatment I have ever received. The staff is friendly and welcoming and will work with you to ensure that you get better. Overall the best experience I've had with physical therapists!

Bravo P. / Yelp

This office took care of me for almost 10 years, through 4 surgeries getting back to as close to normal as possible considering where I was when I came in. All I learned has helped me to maintain my health for many years, and counting!

Mary Jane W. / Facebook

Being an athlete it was reassuring to know that Mike and Curtis wanted to help me get back to the same level I was performing at in my sport and not just to minimize the pain. They gave me the confidence to return to my sport without fear of reinjury.

Orthopedic physical therapy is both a science and an art that focuses on improving the function of the human body. Therapeutic techniques can target muscles, bones, joints, tendons, and ligaments, depending on the patient’s unique challenges. It nearly always includes manual, hands-on therapy from a licensed physical or occupational therapist, but a comprehensive approach, like the one offered at MOPT, also includes patient education and individualized therapeutic exercise programs that can be practiced at home. Treatment can also include therapies such as aquatic therapy, acupuncture, and AlterG therapy. When searching for “manual physical therapy near you,” your search starts and ends with MOPT! Allow our licensed physical and occupational therapists to help you improve function, restore flexibility, and enhance your mobility in a friendly and professional patient-centered atmosphere.
