Aquatic therapy or pool therapy, is physical therapy performed in the water. This is an excellent option for patients that have difficulty weight bearing or standing for long periods after an injury or surgery. It often allows patients who have difficulty moving on land a safe and comfortable alternative to do therapy in, as the water reduces the weight distributed throughout the body. Aquatic therapy is often prescribed for patients with low back pain, lower extremity injuries, chronic pain and shoulder or neck pain. We are the only privately owned clinic in the White Mountains that offers aquatic therapy services.
Dry needling is the use of either solid filiform needles (also referred to as acupuncture needles) or hollow-core hypodermic needles for therapy of muscle pain, including pain related to myofascial pain syndrome. It is often used to treat acute back pain and muscle tightness throughout the body.
Lower Back And Neck Pain
It is estimated that back pain affects up to 80% of the population and can be caused by everything from auto accidents to gardening. White Mountain Physical Therapy has highly skilled therapists with successful histories of treating back pain through specific therapeutic exercise, manual therapy, modalities and other skilled treatments. We love watching our patients go from debilitating pain and suffering to return to healthy, active lifestyles.

The Graston Technique
The Graston Technique is a therapeutic method for diagnosing and treating disorders of both muscles and connective tissue. This treatment utilizes a collection of six stainless steel tools of particular shape and size, which are used to rub patients' muscles in order to detect and resolve adhesions in the muscles and tendons. Practitioners must be licensed (certified) by the parent corporation (Graston Technique, LLC.) in order to use the patented instruments.
