What Is Aquatic Physical Therapy?

You’ve probably heard of physical therapy before and may have even benefited from this treatment method. However, you might not realize that the principles of physical therapy can be applied in water, as well. Watch this video for an introduction to aquatic physical therapy.

Aquatic therapy provides an ideal environment for older individuals who are affected by joint degeneration that is normal with age. The reason for this is that water offers a great body weight support system, allowing people to move freely and work at a higher level than they can tolerate on land. When performed one-on-one, aquatic therapy can address individual balance, strengthening, and range-of-motion needs for patients.

The Houston Spine & Rehabilitation Centers provides aquatic physical therapy in The Woodlands. Please call (281) 297-8105 to learn more or schedule your visit.
