The outpatient clinic of the school of physical therapy broke new ground by providing this unit that contains a large hydrotherapy tank that permits total body immersion.
The unit is equipped with water jets and accessories including underwater weights and used for the treatment and rehabilitation of different musculoskeletal and neurological conditions by using the soothing effect and physical properties of water to minimize patients’ symptoms and allow greater weight reduction on patients’ joints.
It also aids with weak muscles and provides resistance for stronger ones. Furthermore, there are other partial immersions and non-immersion techniques/modalities that can be used for local treatment of specific body parts.

Biofeedback is a technique you can use to learn to control some of your body’s functions, such as your heart rate. During biofeedback, you are connected to electrical sensors that help you receive information about your body. This feedback helps you make subtle changes in your body, such as relaxing certain muscles, to achieve the results you want, such as reducing pain. Biofeedback gives you the ability to practice new ways to control your body, often to improve a health condition or physical performance.
Biofeedback is prescribed for many cases including Chronic pain, urinary incontinence, hypertension, headaches, migraine, enhancing knee extension after an ACL reconstruction, fibromyalgia, neck pain, Post-traumatic stress syndrome, balance disorders, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Vaginal cones are weighted devices consisting of a set of 5 weights, varying from 20 gm to 70 gm designed to increase the strength of the pelvic floor muscles. The intravaginal weight provides sensory feedback for the desired pelvic muscle contraction. The sustained contraction required to retain the weight within the vagina increases the strength of the pelvic floor muscles.
