Warm Water Pool
Therapy in 92° water helps relax painful muscles, increase range of motion and circulation. The buoyancy of water takes pressure off painful joints and permits post-surgical exercise for patients with weight-bearing restrictions. The pool is available with a physician’s order, out-patient service and also for anyone who wants to enjoy a warm water pool.
The pool is equipped with a resistance jet and is handicap accessible. We also offer private changing areas for guests.
Due to mechanical issues, the pool is temporarily closed.
Please call 608-927-6978, extension 7376, with any questions.
