Pediatric Physical Therapy

The goal of pediatric physical therapy is to help children reach their maximum level of independence. At Aquacare, we have the benefit of being able to provide both gym-based and aquatic play-based therapy to help children reach this goal.

In the gym, we use play to help children gain strength, and flexibility, improve coordination, reach motor milestones, and improve independent mobility. We can customize their exercise plan based on the child’s needs and abilities, using equipment such as physio balls, resistance bands, treadmills, and of course, toys!

LSVT BIG Program for Parkinson’s

This program is designed to meet the needs of individuals with Parkinson’s Disease by using large amplitude based exercise for re-education of the sensorimotor system.  LSVT was developed in 1987 using larger movements to recalibrate the brain’s perception of movement size which reduces with Parkinson’s Disease.  LSVT BIG is the only evidenced based treatment protocol for Parkinson’s patients.

  • 16 one hour sessions, 4 days per week for 4 weeks with one on one instruction.  Programs are tailored to each person’s specific needs.  Homework to be completed daily.
  • All exercises are modelled by the therapist with patient then completing with therapist correcting form.
  • BIG walking is completed at each session in various settings to simulate community ambulation.  Focus is on arm swing, increasing endurance and safety.
  • Functional tasks are addressed at each session determined by the patient’s individual need.

As the brain begins to recalibrate the size of movement, the patient is better able to move with more “normal” movements.  Once the program is completed, the patient is provided an ongoing home exercise program.  With diligence, patients see an improvement in quality of movement.

Ongoing studies consistently show the positive effect of exercise on slowing the progression of Parkinson’s Disease.

Golf Therapy

Golf fitness physical therapists work with patients in the areas of performance enhancement. Millville Clinic Director Connor Drislane works with golfers to rehabilitate them after injury while also supporting them to understand their limitations.

Over my ten sessions in Millville, I worked with three different therapists, and all of them were great. I like that the therapist works with you exclusively during your session. They track your progress and have a planned set of exercises to work on. I made good progress and feel great about my experience. Thank you Aquacare folks. You all are the best.

All the staff are very attentive to the patient he/she is working with. As a patient I always have my therapist's attention. He/she listens to me and my concerns. I have even brought my daughter who has autism here for therapy and the staff were so patient and kind to her. They are all so awesome.

The staff from front to the treatment room was excellent. The treatment from all the therapists who worked with me was the best. Also, very friendly and lots of laughs, well needed at times. Their patience and humanity was awesome. Laughter and kindness are just as good a medicine as the actual physical therapy. Thanks All for everything.❤

After being hit by a truck 6 years ago and having a shattered pelvis, I have 6 screws and a plate holding me together. I have had a feeling of a vise in my but i for 6 years, very restrictive and debilitating. After 1, I repeat ONE, evaluation and ONE assessment that the problem was my back and not the screws. It has changed my life. Lauren did 1 thing to my back and the vise thing is GONE. They (Donna, Bryan, Nicki and Lauren) have recommended that a Needling will help release the muscles in my legs that... Read more

I had just about given up hope on ever being able to live with my neuropathy and back pain until I began therapy at Aquacare. Nicole, Amanda, Bryan and Marisa worked hard to get me started with therapy on land and in the pool. It was Conor who changed my life. He tried a variety of stretching and strengthening exercises until we found several that eliminated my back pain and strengthened my legs giving me hope that I could live with my "new normal". I was able to work and enjoy my life. Although surgery is in my future I... Read more
