Utah's aquatic therapy experts
Water benefits for every BODY
Specialized treatment techniques
Independent exercise programs
What makes us unique?
Find out why water is considered the “great equalizer” helping to improve body movement and function. No other therapy group in Utah offers specialized aquatic treatment techniques, exercises, and programming the way we do!
We are not your typical Physical Therapy Clinic.
Under the direction of Dr. Brian Terry, we set out to change the culture of what many consider “conveyor belt” physical therapy practices. Here, physical therapy is more than treatment and exercise; it is an experience tailored to the individual with the support of a community under a common and unifying goal to live a healthy life.
More than just treating patients, our mission is to serve people and rehabilitate pain-free, healthy movement for a happy life. Using traditional physical therapy techniques in combination with unique treatments in our warm water pool, we take a professional and personal approach to providing physical therapy services that improve function. We then encourage continued individual health and fitness through independent and group aquatic programming. All of this is offered in a supportive environment that we hope makes each person feel at home and contributes to a positive, healing experience.

“I have never had such a positive physical therapy experience in my life. The entire staff not only genuinely cares about your condition but also values you as a person!” – Melissa
“Sandy Aquatics is an outstanding facility. Each class offered provides exercise that focuses on relaxation and balance, or cardio, or a combination of stimuli. After your first class, you won’t want to miss a class ever!” – Jane

“When I started physical therapy I could not raise my arm from my side. Brian gets in the pool with me each week to work on strength and flexibility. I am now able to raise my arm above my head – that’s a big deal!!” – Lisa
“With five herniated discs I was referred to Sandy Aquatics for water physical therapy. Prior to therapy, I was having difficulty walking, standing, sitting, or lying down. My pain level was very high before I began. After three months of water therapy, I am pretty much pain-free.” – Helen
“Since high school, I’ve been in PT for one thing or another and while I was compliant, I was BORED out of my mind. Not the case with pool therapy. The hour ZOOMS by. I cannot recommend Sandy Physical Therapy and Aquatics enough. You like water? You need PT? This is an excellent choice.” – Kathleen
