It’s Summer Time-It’s Pool Time!

Summer time is a perfect time to get started with an aquatic exercise program.  Many types of orthopedic, metabolic and neurological conditions prevent people from exercising comfortably and successfully in the typical gym setting.  Get started today utilizing the pools at HP Fitness by working through your pain and limitations with a physical therapy program first.  We are the only facility that has therapists in the water with you while you learn the exercises and challenge yourself safely.  The aquatic physical therapy program is often covered by insurance and we will verify your insurance benefits for you.  The warm water pool makes exercise much more comfortable to arthritic joints.  With easy stair or lift access, everyone has access to the pool. 

HealthPoint's Aquatic Physical Therapy Program

  • One-on-one therapy between the therapist and the patient the entire time
  • Water depth is three and one-half to five feet, and the patient does not have to get his/her face wet
  • Water temperature is 88 to 90 degrees warm
  • There are steps with hand rails on both sides to enter and exit the pool. A hydraulic lift is also available for those who are unable to use the steps.
  • Towels, lockers and private changing rooms with showers and toilets are available during therapy sessions.
  • By Physician referral and approved by Medicare and most insurance carriers.

For more information, call 573-986-4411.

Heat Related Illness

With the summer fast approaching, it is important that we be aware of illnesses that are caused by heat, especially in Southeast Missouri.  Heat related illnesses occur when the body is unable to disperse heat adequately in hot and humid environments.  As a result, a harmful amount of heat is concentrated in the body’s core temperature during activity.  This can lead to heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke, which all have dangerous effects on the body.
