Aquatic Therapy

, ,

Aquatic therapy is a beneficial form of therapy that is performed in the water. Aquatic therapy is useful for treating an array of medical conditions, and it is used to assist in patient healing. Sovereign Rehabilitation uses aquatic therapy to decrease pain, promote healing, facilitate movement, and provide muscle resistance in a low impact environment. Many studies have been done to document the benefits of aquatic therapy for those with Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Neurological Conditions, and those recovering from injuries and surgery.

How Safe is the Driver in the Car Next to You?

Sovereign Rehabilitation Launches New Program to Assess Driving Safety


Julia McVicker of Sovereign Rehabilitation’s Sandy Springs office tests James Flanders braking reaction during his recent driving assessment.  Sovereign Rehabilitation is offering its “Driving Health” screening in their Sandy Springs/Dunwoody Office.

Accidents involving teen drivers dominate the headlines, but there’s another segment of the population at risk on our roads:   senior citizens.   According the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 183,000 older adults were injured in motor vehicle crashes in 2008 amounting to 500 seniors injured in a crash every day.   And as the baby boomers age there will be an increase in older drivers behind the wheel.  In 2007 there were 31 million licensed drivers aged 65 and older, up 19% from the previous decade.   For many families, the decision to take away the keys from an elderly relative is a tough one and the conversation can become uncomfortable and unavoidable.

Sovereign Rehabilitation is pleased to announce the launch of their new “Driving Health” program designed to determine whether it is a safe for an individual to continue driving following an injury, an illness or due to age-related changes.   “Our goal is to assure safe and independent mobility within the community,’ says Alan Grodin, President of Sovereign Rehabilitation. ‘We continue to strive to offer services that will enhance the quality of life.”
