Benefits of Hydrotherapy

Image of the benefits of using hydrotherapyThe warm water of hydrotherapy helps to relax tense muscles and improve flexibility and also increases the flow of blood which aids in the healing process and can alleviate pain and stiffness in patients with chronic musculoskeletal conditions such as arthritis, back pain, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, and more. At Fitmax, we offer portable therapy pools made with innovative designs that allow you to participate in beneficial hydrotherapy without having to leave your home.

Aerobic Exercise in the Water

Water helps to decrease the gravitational force on your body so you can move and exercise without the stress on your joints that is normally associated with weight-bearing exercises on land. The buoyancy of the water means that you can increase or decrease your weight-bearing load depending on what is required for your injury and recovery. This makes it easier to exercise longer and harder as well as providing a safe amount of resistance during movements for stronger, more resilient muscles.

This increased muscle strength is particularly important for those suffering from musculoskeletal conditions, as the increased muscle mass can help to decrease pain, increase balance and improve function. It can even decrease inflammation and swelling in injured areas and help to heal amputation wounds and fractures.

Hydrotherapy can also be used to improve your endurance, which is important for anyone recovering from surgery, and it’s great for those who are looking to get back into exercise to maintain a healthy lifestyle after an illness or injury. Being in warm water is known to soothe and calm people so it’s a great way to relieve stress, while the gentle exercise will strengthen your muscles again and help you get back into shape.

In addition, being in warm water helps to circulate white blood cells around the body which can boost your immune system and help you fight colds and infections. This coupled with the natural endorphins that are released during exercise can make you feel better about life in general too!
