About Aqua therapy

Aqua therapy is considered to be one of the most effective methods in rebuilding muscle memory. Because the resistance and viscosity of the water directs the physical therapy patient to move slowly, it allows the brain to process the order of movement and rebuild the muscle properly. This makes aquatic therapy a pioneering intervention in treating neurological or neuromuscular conditions such as stroke, radiculopathy as well as orthopedic conditions

Aquatic therapy NYC is one of the unique specialty physio services you can find in our Hands of Hope clinics. Besides stimulating the muscles, the pressure of the water around the entire body promotes relaxation and improves circulatory function, which is great for anyone with cardiovascular impairments, renal impairments, diabetes, Raynaud’s disease or any other circulatory impairments.

Aqua therapy also provides the benefit of working against resistance, with less force and stress put on the joints of the body, making aqua therapy a great intervention for those with herniated disks, pinched nerves, and osteoarthritis. Aquatic therapy at Hands of Hope NYC is suitable for many typical injuries and one of our specialty therapy modalities.

PROPERTIES OF WATER THERAPY

Buoyancy

Acts as a force that combats the effects of gravity, resulting in reduced load stress put on the joints up to 90%, while facilitating joint traction, pain reduction and increased Range of Movement (ROM).

PROPERTIES OF WATER THERAPY

Viscosity

 The increased surface area of water to the body increases the resistance, improves strength and provides a safe environment for challenging balance

PROPERTIES OF WATER THERAPY

Hydrostatic pressure

 This is resistance that increases the farther underwater we go, improving cardiovascular function, blood pressure, circulation and sensory output which is very helpful in physical therapy recovery.
