Expert therapy staff at three Madonna TherapyPlus locations, Main Campus, ProActive and Omaha, are specially trained in aquatic therapy and exercise programs. Aquatic exercise is a fun and energizing way to improve your health, increase strength and relieve pain. Utilizing the warm water therapy pool, many people find aquatic therapy highly beneficial while also being comfortable and relaxing. 

Benefits of Aquatic Therapy:

  • Buoyancy of water decreases amount of weight bearing through the joints, making it an ideal form of exercise for people with arthritis, orthopedic injuries or movement disorders
  • Great for people with back pain or sports injuries as an alternative or complement to land-based exercise programs
  • For people with head injuries, spinal cord injuries or who have had a stroke, aquatic therapy and exercise is an opportunity to perform strength and flexibility exercises sometimes impossible on land.
  • Warm water is soothing to painful joints or muscles and relaxes tight or spastic muscles, allowing a more effective program.
  • Hydrostatic pressure can help decrease swelling and edema in joints.

Madonna's comprehensive vision program serves inpatient and outpatients of all ages with visual impairments resulting from illness or injury which affect daily living activities, including: Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Acquired Brain Injury (ABI), Cerebral Vascular Accident (Stroke/Aneurysm), Post-Concussive Syndrome/Mild TBI, Post-Traumatic Vision Syndrome, Cervical Trauma Syndrome.

Individuals referred for vision rehabilitation first receive a vision consult by a neuro-optometrist. If appropriate for treatment, the neuro-optometrist will direct the occupational therapist on the treatment plan, which may include the use of specialized equipment and teaching adaptive strategies applicable to functional activities to address vision impairments. These strategies will be applied by other members of the patients rehabilitation team during treatment sessions as well, to enhance learning and success. The neuro-optometrist will monitor the patient's progress through follow-up and adjust the vision treatment plan according to the patient's needs.
