ACHA Restoritive Pool Therapy - Program

Exercise and therapy are far less painful in warm water than on land. Water provides low-impact, low-weight bearing exercise that allows the synovial fluid to bring nutrients to the joint surfaces and minimizes the risk of injury or undue stress on the joints. It reduces the foot-striking forces that so often “jar” muscles, ligaments, tendons and bones, lessening the burden on the body.

“Less stress on the joints is one of the main reasons why the use of water therapy for older adults We see a lot of seniors who have pain and discomfort and it’s difficult for them to progress on land therapy, so we use the hydrotherapy pools as a means to get them exercising. With the buoyancy of the water it’s extremely comfortable. Older seniors can do exercises in the water that they cannot come close to doing on the land

During exercise underwater the weight of a human body is reduced up to 90 percent, depending upon the depth of the water. As the body is gradually immersed, water is displaced, creating the force of buoyancy. This takes the weight off the immersed joints progressively, and with neck immersion, only about 15 lbs. of compressive force (the approximate weight of the head) is exerted on the spine, hips, and knees. This means a 150-pound person carries as little as 15 lbs. when submerged. A body suspended or floating in water essentially counterbalances the downward effects of gravity with the upward force of buoyancy.

This effect is of great therapeutic utility as reducing one’s body weight in turn reduces the pressure on one’s joints, allowing aching joints to move more freely, with less pain. A warm aquatic environment also reduces joint inflammation and improves circulation. (Please ask you care manager for further details and costs)
