Making pain a thing of the past is the motto at the three locations of First Colony Aquatic and Rehabilitation Center.

The three locations are 20403 University Blvd., Ste. 100, Sugar Land; 2225 Williams Trace Blvd., Ste. 104, Sugar Land; and 5765 Reading Road, Rosenberg.

Started by owner Sean Hayes in 2004, the physical rehabilitation center offers services “from the head to toes,” according to Hayes.

The inspiration for the business came from Hayes’ experience working in hospitals and seeing poor or ineffective leadership. This spurred Hayes into action and set him out in doing rehabilitation the right way.

Treatments include:
  • Sciatica pain relief
  • Sports injuries
  • Back, neck, hip, knee, elbow, shoulder, wrist, hand, foot and ankle pain relief
  • Motor vehicle accident injuries
  • Chronic pain relief
  • Pre- and post-surgical rehab
  • Balance and gait disorders
  • Vertigo and dizziness
  • Prenatal and postnatal pain
  • Osteoporosis
“We also treat a lot of veteran affairs patients,” Hayes said. “The VA used to only treat their own patients, but then they were making them wait so long that they opened it up to public providers like us.”

Two of the offices have indoor pools that are utilized in aquatic physical therapy. Aquatic therapy is for patients who cannot tolerate land-based exercise, or are restricted from doing so by their doctor.

Along with aquatic therapy, First Colony Aquatic and Rehabilitation Center treats injuries with manual therapy, physical therapy, functional dry needling, vestibular therapy, joint mobilization, disease management programs, blood flow restriction and pelvic floor physical therapy.

First Colony Aquatic and Rehabilitation Center accepts most major insurance, such as Medicare, Tricare, Aetna, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, United Healthcare, Ambetter and Community Health Choice.

When you call to set up your appointment, the staff will take down your insurance information and give you an estimate of what each visit may cost. This is based on the contracted rate between the clinic and the insurance company.
