WHATARE THE BENEFITS OF AQUATIC THERAPY? The Bounce Back Bulletin The Newsletter About Your Health And Caring For Your Body

Aside from alleviating pain and speeding recovery, aquatic therapy has a number of other benefits, as well, including: Begin Recovery Sooner: Aquatic therapy allows patients to begin therapy sooner than land-based therapy allows. Less Joint Stress: Aquatic therapy allows for walking, running, and various movement activities without full weight-bearing.

Maximize Movement: The resistance of the water allows patients to maximize each and every movement in a nearly pain-free environment. This also gives patients a great aerobic workout. Hydrostatic Pressure: The hydrostatic pressure of the water allows for decreasing edema in the extremities. Relaxation: Aquatic therapy decreases muscle tension and allows for a better relaxation response. And so much more!
