Water or pool therapy has long been used as an adjunct to traditional land based therapy techniques. Water is an ideal environment for therapy, as its buoyancy reduces body mass and provides support, which allows for less painful movement. This also permits range of motion to begin earlier than is possible on land. As you progress, we can introduce a variety of equipment to both challenge or assist you.
ARC provides physical therapy in two locations:
Cal Elite Sports Center which is located in Rancho Santa Margarita. This pool is completely indoors and heated to 92 degrees. Hours here are generally Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, from 7:30am to approximately 9:30am.
Our second facility is Waterworks Aquatics in Irvine. There are 4 pools at this location, 3 are enclosed and heated to 92 degrees, and one is outdoors, heated to 86 degrees. We provide services at this facility every day except Wednesday. The hours are as follows: Monday 10:00-3:00, Tuesday 8:00-3:00, Thursday 8:00-3:00, Friday 10:00-2:00.
