The Houston Spine & Rehabilitation Centers offers land therapy to those who need higher impact therapeutic activity than you would receive from aqua therapy. It is also a better method to promote healing and better athletic performance. Physical land therapy is a great way to help your body work the way it’s supposed to after returning from an injury. It can also help if you are making overall health and athleticism your goal. For those who can handle moderate resistance and impact, there is no better or broader therapeutic route than land therapy. Land-based programs that we utilize include:
- Strengthening exercises: We employ equipment and machines to help build back your original strength or make it higher. We focus on target injury areas and can assist with overall body strength.
- Dynamic stabilization activities: These exercises focus on trouble areas like your neck and back and brings power to the muscles that help support them.
- Balance and coordination training: Balance and coordination are required for most everyday tasks. Coordination skills include eye-hand coordination, bilateral coordination and smooth, controlled movements of the body.
- Isokinetic and closed kinetic chain exercises: These exercises focus on joint improvement. Push-ups, squats, bicep curls, and leg extensions to help build the muscles around the targeted joint system.
- Progressive resistance activities: Our staff will help you start slow and low and build up your muscles by gradually increasing the weight used for your target area.
- Cardiovascular-aerobic conditioning training: We are going to focus on your stamina with this type of therapy. You will be able to run longer, faster, and smarter.
- Sport specific activities & training: Our staff picks out exercises to help with your jump shot, kicking the field goal, or throwing a pitch.

- Ergonomic training: Basic day-to-day tasks such as lifting, holding, pushing, walking and reaching are focused on with this therapy.
Patients seeking assistance on their joints and muscles can rely on our low stress, aquatic physical therapy sessions at our Woodlands location. We conduct specific exercises in a safe and controlled water environment allowing the buoyancy property of water to assist you in completing them to help regain muscles and movements. By undergoing aquatic therapy with Houston Spine & Rehabilitation Center, you can take part in physical activities again without putting too much strain on your body. Although weightless, the water in our pool can be used to create resistance and can help to increase muscle strength, endurance, and balance. The water level is adjusted appropriately for each patient, so it is not necessary to know how to swim to participate! Here are some of the treatments we offer in our aqua facility at our Woodlands location:
Range of motion exercises: Our team will guide you in stretching exercises which will allow you to regain your range of motion while slowly building the muscle to endure weight.
Strengthening, endurance, and conditioning exercises: Starting to restore muscles in the water is much easier due to the lower impact and slowed movements. We work on strength, cardio, and balance all while in the water.
Gait-training activities: We utilize an underwater treadmill to help you practice stepping over objects, lifting your legs, sitting down, and standing up.
Core strengthening: Building your core will allow you to start working on all other portions of your body. These muscles help you complete all other tasks.
Agility training: Practicing agility underwater will help you become faster on land. You can start slowly in our pool before graduating to land physical therapy.
