Why Would You Choose Aquatic Therapy For An Injury?

Why Choose Aquatic Therapy?

The properties of water have long been known to promote healing, reduce swelling and increase range of motion in an injured area. Buoyancy reduces weight-bearing joint stress. It helps to decompress a joint. Back pain is reduced in the water because buoyancy acts as a mild traction to the spine. The compressive property of water or hydrostatic pressure reduces swelling. The increase in venous return will reduce swelling as effectively as an ace bandage. Resistance in the water is isokinetic which means you have fluid resistance in all directions and the faster you move in the water, the greater the resistance. Many people use water to heal injuries and return to function.
