Relieves Joint Stress

Water buoyancy helps to take the load off from inflamed and painful joints, making it easier for the body to withstand the pressure. It also helps to perform a variety of functional exercises much early in the rehabilitation stages that otherwise would be difficult on land. The body stress reduces by 50% when the body is immersed up to the waist in water whereas with immersion up to the chest, the body weight reduces by 60%.

Pain Relief

The warmth of water helps in blocking the pain receptors which decreases the pain. The buoyancy of water also helps in reducing pain in the joints.

Reduced Swelling

Due to hydrostatic pressure exerted by the water, there is minimal swelling in the joints and muscles.

Increased Circulation

Warm water increases blood circulation which further relaxes the muscles and reduces the pain. It is also beneficial in reducing stiffness in the joints and muscle soreness.

Muscle Strengthening

The viscosity and buoyancy of water makes water a useful strengthening medium. Water provides an excellent environment for undertaking strengthening exercises early on without the fear of further injury or pain.

Increases Joint Movement

The fluidity and warmth of the water helps reduce stiffness in the joints and aids in muscle lengthening.

Improves Balance

The constant hydrostatic pressure provides a sensory feedback to joint receptors, further enhancing joint awareness. The water fluidity acts as the perfect medium for balance training without the risk of fall or injuries.

Reduces Muscle Tone

As various neurological conditions require assistance and support during the recovery process, water acts as the perfect medium to reduce muscle tone and provide a speedy recovery. Aquatic Therapy provides the necessary support in improving the functionality of weak and paralyzed muscles.

What Techniques do we use
in Aquatic Therapy?

watsu

Watsu is based on stretching the body in the supportive, relaxing medium of warm water. Besides the physical aspect, also the mental aspect has a great importance during this therapy. The Watsu method has a general relaxation and calming effect that soothes the muscle tension.

Aquatic Strengthening and Conditioning

Aquatic environment allows for a painless medium to carry out strength training without putting pressure on the joints. Internationally sourced equipment such as Aqua Flippers, Hand Paddles, Fins, Rowing Oars, Kickboard, Webbed Gloves, Foam Dumbbells, Noodles and Snorkel Sets are further used to aid in strength training under Aquatic Therapy.

Halliwick

The Halliwick concept utilizes the therapeutic properties of water to improve coordination and motor control. It helps in developing a sense of balance(equilibrium) and core stability.
