Benefits of Aquatic Physical Therapy
Hydrostatic pressure – the pressure from the water weights works to increase your blood circulation almost immediately. This is especially helpful for people who suffer from swelling in their lower extremities.
Increased range of motion – water submergence allows your body to move more freely and with less stress; many people find that aquatic therapy provides a great boost to their range of motion.
Joint protection – stress on your joints makes recovery even more complicated. With water therapy, there is less stress on your joints and you can heal with less risk of future injury.
Balance and coordination improvement – therapy in the water helps your body develop a stronger sense of balance, which in turn leads to greater coordination.
Heated water is beneficial for muscle spasms – warm water relaxes your muscles and eases spasms.
Anyone who requires physical therapy should talk to our team about aquatic therapy. It protects your joints while increasing your range-of-motion. Plus, a handful of other benefits. Our team is here to answer any questions that you may have about this effective therapy option.
