Aquatic physical therapy provides a gentle environment for patientís rehabilitation. The waters buoyancy decreases the amount of force and stress on injured and vulnerable joints and tissues.
This allows easier movement and less pain. The viscosity of water provides resistance that allows for muscle strength without the need of weights.
You can build strength, increase cardiovascular endurance, and improve flexibility due to this combination of buoyancy and resistance in the water.
Conditions frequently treated in the pool include:
- Athletic Injuries.
- Orthopedic Conditions.
- Joint Replacement.
