Aquatic Therapy

Warm water therapy is one of the oldest and most effective treatment options for people with physical disabilities, and is gaining acceptance worldwide in the healing of orthopedic and sports-related injuries because of its unique properties.

What Is Aquatic Therapy?

Structured aquatic exercises combine the physical properties of water and exercise. Buoyancy reduces the effects of body weight and weight-bearing forces so you may perform movements in the water with greater ease, and more importantly, less discomfort.

Benefits of Aquatic Therapy

Exercise in water can also have profound physiological effects on the body, including:

  • Increased circulation
  • Increased respiratory rate
  • Decreased blood pressure
  • Increased heart rate
  • Increased metabolic rate

Together, these translate into many positive outcomes for you, including:

  • Relaxation
  • Reduction of pain and muscle spasms
  • Increased range of motion
  • Increased strength, power and endurance
  • Cardiovascular conditioning
  • Comprehensive challenge to coordination, balance and kinesthetic mechanics

  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Low back dysfunction
  • Post-surgical reconstruction and debridements
  • Total joint replacements
  • Chronic pain
