What Is Aqua Physical Therapy For Chronic Pain?

Living with chronic pain? Sports injuries, arthritis, joint disorders, or other chronic medical conditions can all affect your quality of life. 

Aqua physical therapy is an advanced rehabilitative therapy that treats various musculoskeletal disorders. Aquatic massage therapy strengthens your muscles, promotes healing and repair, and reduces your pain through aquatic exercise programs and water circuit therapy.

The soothing properties of water combined with therapeutic exercises allow you to move freely without being limited by pain. 

Dr. Henry Sardar is one of the top Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation practitioners in Brooklyn, New York. He is offering all his patients the chance to try Aqua Therapy for themselves at PainTherapy Medical Care.

How Does Aqua Physical Therapy Work?

Our bodies naturally hold a lot of muscle, fat, and water. When we go about our daily life, these things weigh down and impact our joints. This makes it difficult to heal when we have painful chronic conditions like knee pain, back pain, and other musculoskeletal disorders.

Aquatic physical therapy lifts the pressure off of your joints and bones, making it easier for you to move your body without being hindered by pain. This way, the water exercises allow you to strengthen your muscles and recover from debilitating musculoskeletal injuries.

The therapeutic effects of aquatic therapy include: 

  • Muscle strengthening: The pressure of the water offers resistance and reduces stress on your muscles and bones. It allows your tense muscles to relax and gives you a wider range of motion for your aquatic exercises. The anti-gravity property of water also means that your blood circulation can flow more freely, stimulating your natural healing mechanism.
  • Improved proprioception: The pressure of the water improves your body’s sensory input in your brain. This allows you to be more aware of your body’s movement and position. It also improves your coordination and range of motion for faster recovery from musculoskeletal or neurological injury.
  • Healing and Repair: Cold water therapy tightens up your blood vessels. It slows the blood flow to the painful area and reduces inflammation. Hot water therapy expands your blood vessels, increasing your blood supply. This brings in essential oxygen and nutrients to stimulate and speed up your healing.
