Is Aquatic Therapy Right for Me?

Additional Benefits of Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic therapy is right for everyone, both young and old, from patients suffering from arthritis and foot pain to athletes recovery from sports injuries and so much more. Aquatic therapy can help alleviate pain and speed up your rehabilitation / recovery at the same time. That is what we like to call a win-win!

Additional Benefits of Aquatic Therapy

Aside from alleviating pain and speeding recovery, aquatic therapy has a number of other benefits.

  • Begin Recovery Sooner: Aquatic therapy allows patients to begin therapy sooner than land-based therapy allows.

  • Less Joint Stress: Aquatic therapy allows for walking, running, and various movement activities without full weight-bearing.

  • Maximize Movement: The resistance of the water allows patients to maximize each and every movement in a nearly pain-free environment. This also gives patients a great aerobic workout.

  • Hydrostatic Pressure: The hydrostatic pressure of the water allows for decreasing edema in the extremities.

  • Relaxation: Aquatic therapy decreases muscle tension and allows for a better relaxation response.

  • And so much more!
