Rehabilitation in water

Rehabilitation in water, also known as aquarehabilitation, is a perfect complement to the physiotherapy plan. It supports the treatment of orthopedic and spine diseases. It soothes aching muscles and joints. It shortens the healing process and accelerates recovery.

Rehabilitation in water improves motor coordination. Due to the properties of water, the patient can overcome his limits. Exercises in water make it easier to make movements that are otherwise difficult. During the exercises we are not exposed to further injuries or a fall. Patients usually only at the pool decide to put their “first step” without crutches, which often under normal conditions is not possible due to weak muscles or imbalances.

Exercises performed in water, due to its resistance, do not overload tendons, joints or muscles. Hydrostatic pressure also plays an important role here, which causes the water to press the muscles, thus relaxing them. Water also absorbs shocks and affects the flow of movement.
