Aquatic therapy is a specialization of physical therapy. Using this treatment, physical therapists have seen great results with a variety of patient populations. Water therapy is known to improve motion and flexibility. The warmth of the water and its massaging effects cause relaxation of your muscles while helping to reduce pain. Your natural buoyancy in water reduces the compression on your joints. This makes certain exercises much easier to perform than on land. Even if you don’t know how to swim, aquatic therapy can be a great option for you.
