Advantages of Hydrotherapy & Aquatic Treatments
Water has the power to soothe, heal and rejuvenate. The benefits of hydrotherapy for injury treatment, strengthening and recovery have been demonstrated in clinical studies and medical research. Hydrotherapy offers significant advantages compared to traditional exercise physiology treatments:
Buoyancy. Natural buoyancy of water comfortably supports patients’ weight and reduces stress on joints. Exercises and treatments are easier, more comfortable and safer performed in water.
Viscosity. Hydrotherapy exercise patients benefit from water resistance, which provides more efficient muscle strengthening results compared to using weights.
Hydrostatic pressure. Water supports tissues naturally, helping relieve swelling in damaged areas and improve joint position awareness in rehabilitation therapies.
Warmth. Warm water is not just comfortable and soothing, it also relaxes muscle tissues and vasodilates blood vessels, which allows for increased blood flow and more efficient healing of injuries.
