Recover from Pain or Injury in a Safe and Supportive Pool
Aquatic therapy offers many benefits to people who are experiencing muscle and joint pain, as well as for people recovering from injury or illness. It often is used as part of an overall physical therapy plan, allowing people to build up strength for land-based exercise and therapy, or to provide a safe, comfortable environment for patients who have fall risks.
Aquatic therapy promotes decreased pain, improved balance, increased joint flexibility, increased muscle strength, as well as muscle relaxation. It can be used effectively to treat the following:
- Balance disorders
- Chronic pain
- Joint pain
- Lower back pain
- Orthopedic (bone, joint, muscle) injuries
- Recovery after healing from arthroscopic or joint surgery
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Sprains and strains
