What’s aquatic therapy? And how can it help my back? [Video]

Never done aquatic therapy? Don’t worry: You don’t have to be a good swimmer. It’s simply a way to address physical issues in a weightless environment.

If you’ve ever seen someone doing aquatic therapy, it might look like they’re just enjoying a pool. In fact, being in the water allows patients to use their muscles in a unique space. Under a therapist’s supervision, you could improve your blood pressure, balance or strength at various levels of force. 

With professional help and floating devices, you can work on rehabilitating parts of your body. 

While aquatic therapy may not be for everyone, it’s one of the many types of treatment available at Bronston Chiropractic & Community Care Clinic. Visit our Care Clinic page for more information.
