Because of the body’s natural buoyancy, gravity’s pull on the body can be reduced while submerged. The bodybearsonlyhalfof itsweightwhensubmergedtothechestand about 90 percent when submerged to the neck. This can cushion stiff or painful joints. And yet, water has a natural resistance, forcing patients to use their muscles in gentle, slow, sweeping movements. The aim of aquatic therapy is often to create less pressure on areas such as the spine, to reduce swelling, and to decrease overall pain.
