What is Aquatic Therapy?

Swimming Together

Aquatic Therapy treatment consists of exercises performed in water for relaxation, fitness, physical rehabilitation, and other therapeutic benefits. Aquatic Therapy consists of a diverse array of techniques that include physical therapy, aquatic exercises, and movement therapy in water environments and is performed with clients either floating or partially submerged in the water.

Aquatic Therapy promotes the restoration of movement and function in the body, and is especially prominent for treatments where lack of (limited) or non-weight bearing activity is preferred. In addition, when normal movement is hindered by a range of motion, levels of inflammation, pain, or even muscle spasms. With Aquatic Therapy, the support provided by the water is the greatest advantage. This support helps to remove pain and pressure on the joints during movements while administering resistance, which is used to increase circulation and strengthen muscles and tendons in the body. The human body’s weight consists of more than 50 percent of water. When an individual is in the water, this reduces a person’s body weight by nearly 90 percent. This reduction in body weight enables more movement while removing that stress on the body’s muscles and bones.
