Why You Need Aquatic Physical Therapy

December 17, 2019

What can Aquatic Therapy do for you?


Ever wonder why someone would need such a thing as physical therapy in the pool or “aquatic therapy?”


  • Warm water provides a relaxing and soothing environment for aching joints and muscles. This can help the body relax to allow for enhanced movement during treatments.

  • Water’s natural viscosity or resistance can be used for muscle strengthening.

  • Buoyancy allows for flotation and reduces the effects of gravity on injured or aching joints and muscles.

  • Hydrostatic pressure supports and stabilizes the client, allowing people with balance deficits to perform exercises without a fear of falling, decreasing pain and improving cardiovascular return.

  • The respiratory muscles are forced to work harder in the water, allowing for a natural strengthening that benefits the client long after the therapy session has ended.


 The aquatic environment offers certain properties that can benefit in the recovery/treatment of conditions listed below:


Common conditions treated with aquatic therapy include…

  • Arthritis

  • Joint replacement surgery recovery

  • Low back pain

  • Chronic pain

  • Balance disorders

  • Tendonitis

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

  • Other orthopedic injuries
