Hydrotherapy is a method which uses physical properties of water – buoyancy, viscosity, and hydrostatic pressure – to maintain health and fitness. It is used for rehabilitation, recovery, training and conditioning. From simply floating in warm water for relaxation to upper body exercises, running, conditioning, and sports-specific drills, there is no limit to what can be accomplished with pool exercises. In most instances, any land exercise can be modified for the water. When exercises are performed in water therapy pools, which have a programmable water current, sessions can progress in intensity and outcomes can be really quick and amazing. Pools with water current are ideal for any aquatic therapy space. They pack plenty of function into a small footprint. The water current creates a versatile pool where athletes can achieve a full body workout, swim, run, rehabilitate, and achieve overall fitness and conditioning without any additional pool equipment.
Pools come in many different shapes, sizes interior layouts, and with a variety of in-pool equipment options. The number of users at any given time and the frequency of those users will help you determine the right resistance pool for your needs. In addition, you need to consider the size and strength of the different users.
