YWCA OFFERS AQUATHERAPY AND ARTHRITIS CLASSES

Posted: Wednesday, October 29, 2014

The YWCA Bergen County offers convenient and affordable rehabilitative exercise classes for people of all ages living with physical limitations or challenges. Our experienced and caring Aquatics Specialists conduct water therapy classes in two spacious, heated pools, and you can take advantage of a free trial session to find out if a program is right for you.
Since 1985, the YWCA’s Health and Therapeutics department has continuously developed programs in conjunction with physical therapists to treat a variety of physical and medical conditions. Aquatherapy classes are designed for adults with orthopedic and/or neurological conditions. These group classes use water movement exercises to increase range of motion while strengthening muscles and improving flexibility. Aquatherapy “Plus” offers additional deep water work, swimming and advanced exercises for those in need of a challenge. One-on-one instruction is available for individuals who are unable to participate in group classes.
The YWCA also offers water therapy classes specifically for those dealing with Arthritis. Gentle group exercises help increase range of motion, relieve joint stress and relax stiff muscles.
All classes are held at the YWCA’s 112 Oak Street, Ridgewood location. This facility is handicapped accessible, and our Habernickel pool is equipped with a hydraulic lift to provide easy entrance and exit. For more information or to schedule an interview and free trial class, please call Linda at (201) 444-5600, ext, 348 or visit us online at www.ywcabergencounty.org.
