Rue and Primavera OT & PT is teaming with John Vanderzicht Memorial Pool to offer physical therapy in the water.

Rue and Primavera has slowly grown this program for several years and invested in therapists and equipment, according to Wendolyn Rue PT, CLT.

“We are eager to make this gentle and effective therapy accessible to the community,” she said.

Therapy in the water is typically used for people who are in pain, have difficulty moving, or strength and endurance problems and other medical concerns.

John Vanderzicht Memorial Pool provides safe hydraulic lifts that can assist those who need it in and out of the pool, Rue said.

Aquatic therapy is covered by most health insurance, said Rue.
