Aquatic Therapy and its Benefits in Post-Surgery Rehabilitation
As anyone who has ever had surgery knows, post-op rehabilitation can be a painful recovery process. Luckily, there is an alternative to traditional physical therapy and rehab that could help eliminate much of that pain.
The Solution: Aquatic Therapy!
Aquatic therapy is the closest thing to a pain-free rehab that any post-op patient can hope for. This is because the buoyancy of the water helps reduce the stress exerted on the joints and injured tissue. This makes for a much more comfortable and relaxing post-op rehab experience.
Post-op patients who opt for aquatic therapy can actually start the rehab process quicker, typically just 3-4 days after surgery. This helps to decrease swelling and discomfort much sooner than those patients opting for traditional physical therapy.
Aquatic therapy allows for painless motion with added resistance, thus strengthening the muscles faster while also minimizing the loss of range of motion.
