Why choose Aquatic Exercise?
Water exercise is an effective method to train for mobility while protecting the joints using water’s natural buoyancy.
It can improve posture with a subjective feeling of support and lightness.
It provides greater freedom of movement and multidimensional resistance or buoyancy assistance.
It decreases swelling and offsets the tendency of blood pooling in the extremities.
It increases blood supply to the muscles significantly which improves oxygen delivery to the muscles.
It allows for easy variation of load or weight-bearing levels. You may choose to completely unload (in deep water) or load up to 50% in shallow water.
It easily competes with, and can exceed, land training benefits if the same amount of effort is put into both programs. Many individuals experience greater improvements with less pain and discomfort in the water.
