The Healing Powers of Aquatic Therapy

Posted by Krista Payne on Sep 3, 2015 1:30:23 PM

Water. To date it is the best terrain for the body to reach full functionality of your body regardless of the injury or ailment you may be suffering from. Submerging in neck-deep custom swimming pools or water tanks reduces your weight by almost 90% allowing for greater motion and flexibility than that compared to dry land. The combination of the warmth of the water and its massaging effects allow muscles to relax while helping to reduce pain and drop blood pressure. Buoyancy in the water allows the patient to reduce compression on their joints and spine and allows for the strengthening of muscles without the pain that many experience with exercises much easier to perform than on land. Aquatic therapies can be used even if a patient does not know how to swim as the swimmer is typcially in shallow waters. 

Here are just a few of the benefits you will get from aquatic therapy.

Just what you think of when you take a cleansing bath right?
