Aquatic Therapy is quickly becoming well known for its amazing effects with speeding recovery and rehabilitating injuries. The fastest way for a patient to recover from an injury is to begin the rehab process as soon as possible, but often time pain levels impact their ability to be productive.
The pain commonly associated with rehab can be decreased/eliminated in water because it reduces the weight bearing on joints. Once in warm, soothing water, you can expect increased range of motion, decreased muscle spams and pain. Water resistance helps to strengthen muscles and reinforce balance. Water resistance automatically creates an easy or hard workout based on patient exertion. Exercises are more enjoyable and patients exercise at their own comfort level.
