Aquatics






Aquatic therapy consists of an exercise program that is performed in the water. It is a beneficial form of physical therapy that is useful for a variety of medical conditions. Aquatic therapy uses the physical properties of water to assist in patient healing and exercise performance.

One benefit of aquatic therapy is the buoyancy provided by the water. While submerged in water, buoyancy assists in supporting the weight of the patient. This decreases the amount of weight bearing, which reduces the amount of stress placed on your joints. This aspect of aquatic therapy is especially useful for patients with arthritis, healing fractured bones, or who are deconditioned for whatever reason. By decreasing the amount of stress on your joints and muscles it is easier and less painful to perform exercises.
