You don’t have to be a swimmer to love warm water. We have both stairs and a lift for easy access into our 93 degree therapy pool. With your therapist by your side some of the benefits of aquatic therapy are:
Increase in joint flexibility. Buoyancy offers a tremendous advantage because it reduces the effects of gravity allowing for increased joint range of motion. Your affected body part will float, making it easier and less painful to move. The warm water also helps to relax muscles that are sore or tight.
Increase in muscle strength. Water is 600-700 times more resistive than air which allows for strengthening of weakened muscles. Water resists rapid movement so equipment with increased surface area is used to increase strength in the pool.
Decrease in pain. Immersion in warm water increases an individual’s comfort, by increasing blood supply to sore muscles and promoting relaxation. Weight relief to weakened body structures also creates additional comfort.
Improved 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.
Every session teaches you new ways to enjoy stretching and strengthening. When you are done, we provide an individualized laminated aquatic program so you can continue to exercise in your own pool or ask about our memberships at Redbud Fitness and Lifestyle Center so you can continue to use our pools throughout the year.
