WHAT IS ALL THE HYPE AROUND WATER THERAPY?
Hydrotherapy is an effective treatment for lower back pain as it assists with decreasing load on the spine while exercising. The buoyancy of the water allows your spine to recover while the water acts as resistance for strength training. The water helps facilitate motion, making it easier to achieve certain ranges of movement that would be difficult to do so outside of the water. Water therapy can assist in reducing pain by increasing blood flow and circulation.
Hydrotherapy is a great tool for acute pain management where fear of movement or risk of falling is prevalent. The water becomes a safe space where we can regain motion, increase our confidence and improve our overall function.
