After just few sessions, patients experience increases joint flexibility since the buoyancy reduces the effects of gravity allowing for increased joint range of motion. The warm water also helps to relax muscles that are sore or tight, offering relief from pain and muscle cramps. Water immersion increases patients’ comfort by increasing blood supply to sore muscles and promoting relaxation.

Aquatic Therapy helps to increase muscle strength due to high resistance of water and improves balance. The uniform pressure of the water along with buoyancy provides support to your body, which allows you increased time to react without the fear of falling or getting hurt.
