Five Aquatic Therapy Benefits from Endless Pools
Aquatic therapy has become increasingly popular as awareness to the benefits of hydrotherapy versus traditional, land-based therapy come to light. Through products such as the Endless Pools® Original model, you can achieve unique results by harnessing the soothing, healing properties of water.
While land-based exercise is the more conventional choice, those who step inside a pool enjoy a variety of clear advantages that can decrease injury risk as well as offer alternative workouts.
It is important to remember that pools aren’t just for swimming. While many gain outstanding results from the ability to swim in their Endless Pools model, aquatic therapy can meet the needs of swimmers and non-swimmers alike.
Here are five distinct benefits to water exercise that you can achieve with the assistance of an Endless Pools installation.
Depending on water depth, body weight can be reduced up to 90%, greatly reducing joint stress and pain you may experience outside the water. While gravity can make land exercise daunting or even impossible for some, the buoyancy—or upward force—of water will support you and provide an ideal, low-impact workout setting.
Water will naturally put up a fight and resist movement, providing you with a strenuous workout. Endless Pools also offer swim current and hydrotherapy jet options that enhance resistance. Rather than deal with heavy weights and complicated machines outside of the pool, utilize the natural resistance of water to strengthen your muscles in a safer, more versatile environment.
3. Range of Motion
The warmth (Endless Pools can be heated up to 90 degrees) of water can enhance your therapy, relaxing your muscles and increasing blood flow to your muscles and joints, providing you the opportunity to improve your flexibility. Develop a greater range of motion to maintain your ability to complete everyday tasks.
4. Pool Options
Break free from the limitations of land exercise. Inside an Endless Pool you can swim, run, jog, walk, stretch, work on balance, practice aerobics, and more. The freedom of a low-impact, low-stress, safe environment will allow you to rehabilitate, train, exercise and regenerate your body.
Ever wonder what it would be like to look forward to your exercise routine? Swimming, running, walking, stretching—any type of exercise in the pool takes on a unique, fresh feel when immersed in water. In the crystal clear, soothing water of an Endless Pool, you’ll enjoy your workout and feel good about yourself as you work toward your goals.
