Benefits of Water Therapy

Aquatic therapy is a highly effective form of physical therapy that encompasses the whole body, not just one injured area. For some patients, traditional land exercises are too painful, often because of a recent injury or surgery. For others, chronic conditions like fibromyalgia and arthritis have difficulty with traditional physical therapy.

Aquatic physical therapy offers many benefits to speed healing, including:

  • Warm water relaxes muscles and promotes circulation, increasing blood flow to the areas of your body that need healing
  • Buoyancy and weightlessness allow the client to perform strengthening exercises without causing further damage to the injured area
  • Less pain and fear with movement
  • Reduced swelling
  • Improved flexibility
  • Greater range of motion in buoyancy assistive environment

Finally, the ability to perform more exercises with less pain increases our clients’ confidence and creates a positive outlook assisting the healing process improving lifestyle.
