Benefits of Aquatic Therapy




We are proud to share that our Lattimore White Spruce clinic has a pool for aquatic therapy! There are many benefits to participating in aquatic therapy compared to regular physical therapy. Take a look at these benefits to see if this may be a good fit for you!

Joint Relief 

Buoyancy helps reduce gravity which allows for a decrease in joint compression and an increase in range of motion. You will float, making the part of your body that hurts less painful to move. The warm water also helps to relax muscles that are sore or tight.

Pain Management

The warm water increases your comfort by increasing blood supply to sore muscles and promoting relaxation. Weight relief to weakened body structures also creates additional comfort.

Muscular Stimulation 

Muscles are forced to work harder in the water, allowing for a natural strengthening throughout therapy sessions. The resistance of the water also helps increase muscle strength 

Injury Prevention 

The pressure of the water against your body helps to support you throughout your movements. Water resistance will also provide you increased time to react without the fear of falling or getting hurt.

If you feel that Aquatic Therapy is right for you, give our White Spruce Location a call at 585-442-6067.
