When should someone use aquatic therapy?

Aquatic therapy is ideal for patients who cannot yet tolerate land-based exercise. Thus, it is often considered an early necessary step in the recovery process for many people who need to learn to walk again.  When the patient is ready to include land based activities, the Second Step Gait Harness System can provide a “real world,” over-ground, walking experience.

Please visit www.secondstepinc.com to find out about the results oriented, clinically proven Gait Harness System® (GHS) and NEW Gait Harness System® II (GHSII). Many severely injured individuals who are using the GHS, and who were unable to walk in the 5, 10 and 20 plus years post their injuries, are now beginning to stand and walk again for the first time. The GHS helps individuals regain healthy functioning after challenges due to spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, stroke, cerebellar degeneration, orthopedic, neurological, lower extremity amputation, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and other ambulation, gait and balance rehabilitation issues. The GHS is used world-wide in a broad spectrum of out-patient, in-patient, and home enriched environments.
