SwimEx

Frederick Sport and Spine Clinic is the only area site offering you the state-of-the-art SwimEx Aquatic Therapy Pool. Starting with little or no water resistance in your initial stages of rehabilitation, you can begin walking or exercising sooner due to the buoyancy principle of water. This allows you to exercise without the compressive loading forces present with a routine land-based program. As you progress, water resistance can be increased up to 6.5 mph of current via the SwimEx’s patented paddlewheel propulsion system. The current creates a “wall of water” which allows you to safely simulate sport specific activities. Progressive exercises can also be performed at eight different workstations in the pool allowing limitless protocols suitable for you at every stage of your recovery. That is why the SwimEx is the pool of choice for universities and professional sports teams across the country, including the Baltimore Ravens and U.S. Naval Academy. Go to the SwimEx Web Site for a complete list of teams and schools.
