Aquatic Therapy

 


We are proud to offer our patients the 

only underwater treadmill 

in Greater Calhoun County.


Ann joined Wilhoite Physical Therapy in 2014, and she runs our aquatic therapy program, located at our Oxford clinic on Snow Street.

The pool is open for one-on-one patient care, and it is available for Aftercare patients during designated times.
