The Benefits of Participating in Aquatic Therapy

Pool lifts help provide access for individuals with limited mobility, allowing them to take advantage of aquatic rehabilitation and exercise. Aquatic therapy offers many benefits to individuals suffering from physical ailments. It’s also a great option for those searching for low-impact exercise regimens. The water’s buoyancy removes stress and pressure off muscles and joints. Movement takes less effort while achieving a greater range of motion. The resistance of water can be used to improve muscle strength without the possibility of falling. Access to aqua therapy gives individuals the chance to enhance their overall quality of life.

Other benefits include:
  • Improved muscle strength and tone

  • Increased strength and endurance
