Aquatic Therapy for post surgical physical therapy
Updated: Jul 21
We prescribe HYDROWORX aquatic therapy when individuals are in a great deal of pain and are not able to put full weight on limbs. Aquatic therapy helps patients start rehabilitation much sooner because water provides a non-weight bearing environment. Once you are in the pool, you can start performing non-weight bearing activities sooner than if you were at a traditional physical therapy gym.
Aquatic Therapy provides low or no impact resistance, has a positive impact on motion and flexibility, reduces pressure to joints, and can increase the blood flow to injured areas.
The buoyancy of the water supports the body and reduces body weight by up to 80%.
HYDROWORX Aquatic therapy is also an effective treatment for dance and sports injury rehabilitation. It enhances strength and improves ﬂexibility when combined with resistance training.
The unique aspects and benefits of Aquatic Therapy include:
Optimizing non-impact environment for your pain relief
Variable speed underwater treadmill
Resistance jets for therapy, rehabilitation, sports performance training, and swimming
Underwater massage to relieve your muscle spasms
Underwater cameras & biomechanical monitoring system
Therapy results include:
Improved flexibility and core strength
Decreased inflammation to damaged muscles and nerves
Speedier recovery process by initiating therapy in a low-impact environment
