The Benefits of Aquatic Therapy in Boston, MA
Aquatic therapy has existed for centuries, and began with men and women bathing in natural mineral springs. Aquatic therapy is one of the best methods of providing relief to those in need of rehabilitative services. It is a wise alternative to a cold and overcrowded pool. Sanitized with sodium bromide and constantly kept at a temperature of around 90 degrees, the Hydroworx salt-water pool available at Boston Sports Medicine is useful to patients with a wide variety of needs. Aquatic therapy allows patients who are severely debilitated to move freely and without pain. Its benefits also extend to these health conditions:
- Athletic or orthopedic injuries
- Chronic musculoskeletal pain
- Neck and back pain
- Effects from surgery
