How aquatic therapy may help you

Aquatic therapy is a type of physical therapy we use at Excel Sports and Physical Therapy that uses water to help you achieve your physical therapy goals. This type of therapy usually takes place in one of our therapy pools, and may be able to help you in several ways.

One valuable way that aquatic therapy can help you is by allowing the removal of weight and stress from your joints. The pull of gravity that adds weight to your joints isn’t as strong when you’re in the water. This may allow you to be more comfortable during your physical therapy.

The resistance provided by our aquatic therapy makes it ideal for your physical therapy needs. Water resistance is much more gentle on your body than the resistance of gravity that you experience when doing exercises and stretches on land. In fact, performing your physical therapy exercises in water makes them less stressful and painful on your recovering muscles or joints.

Finally, our physical therapists use in-water therapy as a valuable tool that takes advantage of the pressure exerted on the body by the water itself. This gentle pressure may help to reduce the swelling that commonly occurs in injuries that require physical therapy.

For all of these reasons and more, aquatic therapy is a valuable tool that Excel Sports and Physical Therapy uses to help you during your recovery process.
