Have No Pain and All The Gain with Physical and Aquatic Therapy
Many patients seek out physical therapy and aquatic therapy to minimize some form of pain they are having. This includes:
What most of these patients do not realize is that therapy is not only going to reduce pain, but it can eliminate it in many situations.
Where Did the Pain Originate?
The source of your pain could be muscles, tendons, or ligaments. Continued pain is happening due to damage done to one of these tissues, which is not healing properly. The lack of healing or improper healing will cause pain and limited motion or use of this area.
Improve Flexibility and Reduce Inflammation
Stretching, massages, and designated exercises target any outstanding back pain, neck pain, or shoulder pain. Your therapist will isolate the source and take advantage of these different methods.
After several sessions of physical therapy, you will start to notice significant pain reduction, as well as flexibility and strength, broadening your range of motion and take advantage of new moves. Most patients are able to regain their previous physical ability and even increase the use of the area thanks to proper healing practices through physical therapy.
Find Your Inner Sea Animal with Aquatic Therapy
The pressure that water can take off of your body makes aquatic therapy a popular choice of therapy for many suffering from back pain. While in the water, defy the laws of gravity and enjoy a new level of balance and agility.
A constant use of aquatic therapy increases overall aerobic activity and decreasing the stress on the pained area. Minimizing the stress through strength building and aquatic exercises quickly reverses damage and reinstates healing for the shoulder pain, neck pain, or back pain.
