I have finally been given the go ahead to start PT and I was wondering if anyone knows of a good center in NYC, preferably Queens. I am post surgery since December of a spinal fusion.

Also has anyone done aqua therapy after their surgery and if so how is that... Was it better than the conventional PT?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.


  • Typically aqua therapy is easier on you as you only have 20% of your body weight to support in the water. I know for myself it really helps with the stomach muscles as I can pull in with the water force against me. Sometimes they will start a patient in aqua therapy and graduate them to the standard pt or do a combination with aqua therapy and then the therapist may stretch you out. Good luck on therapy.
