Benefits of Aquatic Therapy in East Cambridge, MA
Aquatic therapy is the effective use of water to treat injuries and help the body to repair itself. Water has been used for thousands of years just for this purpose. Ancient aquatic therapists used bathing in mineral rich, hot springs and massage techniques utilizing natural oils to soothe sore muscles, joints, and ligaments.
These practices received a modern make over with the help of technologically enhanced equipment and updated therapeutic techniques administered by personable and trained staff members. The time proven method of aquatic therapy continues to be a popular way to safely heal muscle trauma and conduct resistance training without undue strain on joints. Working out in the water under the care and direction of licensed physical therapists is an effective, refreshing, and fun way to rehabilitate the body.
