Benefits of water therapy
Individuals with traumatic brain injury, sports related injuries, seniors, and others may be unable to exercise on land but often can do so comfortably in the water. The buoyancy of water causes the individual to feel an upward thrust when submerged. Buoyancy allows for a variety of exercises to be performed in the pool with minimal equipment. In addition, people with balance issues may experience less fear of falling while walking and exercising in the pool. Other benefits of buoyancy are that the water supports weak muscles, enhances flexibility and range of motion, and increases the ease of handling for the therapist.
The resistance created by water workouts also creates muscle balance. Many orthopedic issues and most back pain problems can be relieved through developing both sides of the muscle. Since muscle fibers must be equally recruited during flexion and extension when moving through water, aquatic exercise provides the ideal environment for this type of workout.
