Aquatic Therapy

Benefits

Aquatic Therapy or pool therapy improves your range of motion, strength and mobility in the buoyancy of water. Exercise in a water environment is less stressful on joints. Heated Aquatic Therapy benefits include: decreased pain in arthritic joints, increased flexibility, reduced muscle spasms, increased circulation, and increased diuresis and cell metabolism.

Details

Aquatic Therapy uses the resistance of water rather than weights. It works to rehabilitate patients suffering from injury or chronic illness by placing less stress on the joints during exercise. Aquatic Therapy can be performed on patients who cannot participate in “land” exercises.
