The Benefits of Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic therapy is one of the safest, most comfortable treatment options a physical therapy patient will ever experience. Common benefits of aquatic therapy are:

  • Decreased Pain
  • Improved Range of Motion and Flexibility
  • Improved Strength and Aerobic Endurance
  • Improved Walking Skills
  • Improved Confidence and Mental Status

Aquatic therapy takes advantage of:

  • Buoyancy – it eases the stress on your muscles and joints.
  • Temperature – the warm water soothes and relaxes the body.
  • Viscosity – the “thickness” of the water provides gentle resistance.
  • Turbulence – moving water gently challenges the body to maintain balance and control.
  • Hydrostatic Pressure – this pressure provides natural relief of joint swelling.

What the Patient will Need:

  • Swimsuit
  • Aqua Shoes
  • Towel
  • A robe to wear from the locker room (optional)
  • Cap (optional)
