Introducing breakthrough technology of HydroTherapy with underwater treadmill for Back Pain, Stroke, Arthritis and more… The effects of HydroTherapy
Hydrotherapy has lasing effects of the body. Movement underwater has the ability to improve balance, coordination, and motor skills. It can also improve muscular endurance and strength as well as decrease pain. Aquatic therapy has proven to lessen arthritic pain, chronic pain, Fibromyalgia, post surgery injuries, and many other health conditions. It also has proven results for stroke, arthritis, neuropathy, and spinal cord injuries.
Resistance and Strength Working against the variable water resistance increases resistance and strength. This resistance contributes increased weight bearing ability as well as increased muscular strength and tone.
Buoyancy diminishes the effect of gravity. When your body is immersed shoulder deep in water, you are 90% weightless. You are 80% weightless at chest level, 50% weightless at waist level, and 20% at knee level. It is rehabilitation without joint stress with increase flexibility.
Exerts 15 pounds of pressure on all areas of a submerged body. It also places pressure on the chest walls to simulate chest expansion and deeper ventilation, thus attributing to increased cardio- respiratory activity. This pressure also causes a decrease in edema in lower extremities due to the centralization of blood bolume. The treatment in water is efficient because edema is addressed the entire length of treatment.
Sensory stimulation in water increased kinesthetic awareness of the body. It promotes relaxation and opens the body to a better rehabilitation.
