Optimize your strength, motion, and function with Aquatic Therapy.
Aquatic Therapy at South Sound Physical Therapy can greatly enhance your functional mobility and abilities, even while outside of the water. Our water environment provides a safe setting for exercise at a lower level of cardiac stress, encouraging physical activity that helps to maintain bone mass and decreases demineralization or weakening of the bones. Risks of falling are decreased as well, allowing some people access to activities in which they would not normally be able to participate.
Physical benefits of aquatic therapy can include:
- Increased circulation
- Improved blood pressure and lung capacity
- Decreased muscle spasms
- Increased flexibility, muscle strength, and endurance
- Improved fat burning
