Millennium Therapy in Eagle Grove has the only therapeutic pool in Northwest Iowa
If you are suffering from pain, stiffness, mobility restrictions, or have struggled with traditional physical therapy- Aquatic Therapy can help you meet your goals! Aquatic Therapy utilizes the properties of water to decrease weight bearing and lessen impact on joints making movement, and progress towards your goals, easier. Meanwhile, therapeutic temperatures help alleviate pain.
Aquatic Therapy at Millennium Therapy takes place at our in-house pool. Our pool is the only therapeutic pool in Northwest Iowa. The therapeutic pool is 3-5 feet deep, and kept at warmer than usual temperatures. Our therapists will enter the pool with you to help guide your exercises and provide manual therapies.
For your comfort, our facility provides locker rooms with showers to ease the transition from pool to land. Patients enter the pool via chair lift or low incline ramp. During therapy, you may choose to wear a swimsuit or shorts and a t-shirt, whatever is most comfortable. We also offer a sauna and hot tub, and welcome our patients to enjoy moist heat benefits post therapy!
