Therapy Through Play
Recently expanded, Ranken Jordan features the only warm water pediatric therapy pool in the region. Surrounded by indoor and outdoor playgrounds and a 1,500-gallon fish tank, children are welcomed into an environment where therapy is driven by play.
The physical therapy program helps children achieve maximum independence through exercise, neurodevelopment and sensory integration, positioning, alignment, and environmental adaptations.

As part of a total care plan, aquatic therapy is a fun way for children to rebuild their strength and confidence. Water decreases impact during movement. Sessions address range of motion, coordination, strengthening, conditioning, mobility and pain management. Our warm water pool offers another medium for various therapies and is ideal for muscle relaxation and non-weight bearing activities.
We welcome parents in the pool with our therapists to directly participate in their child’s session.
The pool is accessible by steps, ramp, roll-in chair or lift. Our heated pool is the only designated pediatric aquatic therapy pool in the region.
