Aquatic Therapy has been a breakthrough treatment in combating lower back pain in patients. When engaging in physical activity on land, a great amount of added stress is placed on your body, unlike Aquatic Therapy that allows your joints and muscles to workout with ease.
For those who are not aware, Aquatic Therapy is performed in a professional facility that houses a therapeutic pool and a therapist. These routined exercises may included walking, jogging, sidestepping and balance workouts. This form of therapy benefits not only those suffering from lower back pain, but a wide range of conditions, such as osteoporosis.
Patients also further benefit during their recovery period with a combination of aquatic and traditional therapy. The patient may find their allotted therapy time more valuable when they are in water based therapy sessions, since the body will be more relaxed and diminishing stress with the gentle features aquatic therapy provides.
