Keep Moving Forward Inc’s Hydroworx is the top underwater treadmill program on Long Island. Aquatic therapy provides a non-weight bearing intervention to enable an individual of varying levels mobility and the ability to move freely.
This low-impact environment created through the body’s buoyancy, can help achieve one’s goals and conditioning by working one-on-one with a trained therapist to maximize functional independence.
