    And who can benefit the most from it? Should it replace out of water regimes or should you have a balance?

    Thanks 🙂

    Aquatic physical therapy is conducted in a safe and controlled water environment. The buoyancy property of water provides support for free movement of joints and muscles with less stress. Water also helps in creating resistance and increasing muscle strength, endurance and balance. It only needs assistance from a specially trained physical therapist for improving function of this therapy and relieving pain.

    Benefits of Aquatic Therapy:

    -Warm water facilitates muscle relaxation and increases peripheral circulation.
    -The viscosity of water provides resistance for strength training.
    -Warm water stimulates body awareness, balance, and trunk stability.
    -Warm water and buoyancy result in decreased pain sensitivity.
    -Improvement of patient morale and confidence can be established by providing a positive medium in which to function.
