Aquatic Therapy

The Unique Advantages of Aquatic Therapy

Bouyancy-floating in the water allows you to exercise with up to 90 percent of body weight removed. This dramatically decreases painful joint compressive forces and fear of falling.

Temperature-the warmth of the water results in relaxation and pain reduction by inhibiting pain pathways.

Turbulence-this property is the ever changing flow of the water which imparts same and gentle forces on the body to help improve your balance and core stability.

Viscosity- this is the “thickness” of water which allows for gentle and progressive resistance to aquatic exercise.

Hydrostatic pressure- the pressure excreted on your body when it is submerged in the aquatic environment. This pressure can assist with the return of blood to your heart from legs while exercising.
