9 Ways You Can Benefit from Aqua Therapy

Aquatic therapy, also referred to as pool therapy, is an exercise program that takes place in a warm pool and can be highly beneficial as a form of therapy for a variety of medical conditions.

Using the physical properties of the water, aquatic therapy can assist patients in healing and promote gentle and effective exercise while reducing pressure on the joints, improving strength and balance, and reducing inflammation.

The warm pool at In Motion O.C. provides a safe environment for our patients who are unable to exercise on land. Here’s how pool therapy can help you.

#1: Lower Blood Pressure
The water is heated to 92°F, which allows for widening of blood vessels decreasing any resistance to allow for lower blood pressure.

#2: Relieves Jont Stress
The water creates an environment that allows you to unload up to 90% of your body weight so that you can move freely and work at a higher level than you could on land.

Additionally, because of the temperature of the water, you will have decreased joint stiffness allowing you to move more freely and pain-free.

#3: Reduces Swelling and Edema
The pressure from the water on the body acts to “pump” the swelling up and out of the leg to be reabsorbed by the system.

Additionally, because the water creates an environment that allows you to move more than you could on land, you are eliciting a “muscle pump” action to further help redirect the fluid away from the site of the swelling.

#4: Improve strength
The resistance from the water allows you to improve your strength without the fear of falling. You can adjust your resistance by altering the speed at which you move your body in the water to make it easier or harder based on your individualized needs.

#5: Improves lung and blood functionms
Your aerobic capacity is a measure of how efficiently your heart and lungs can transport Oxygen-rich blood to your working muscle. This increase in oxygen will allow your heart, lungs, and muscles to perform more efficiently.
