It’s no secret that a little pain comes with building up your physical fitness. But, if you’re one of the millions of Americans recovering from surgery, injury, or living with a chronic illness, getting regular exercise (while sometimes necessary) can seem impossible. Now is the perfect time to introduce aquatic therapy in an Endless Pools® swim spa for the ultimate game changer in your physical therapy program.
Buoyancy and Balance
Are your movements limited on dry land because of pain or lack of strength? We’ve got some great news! When you submerge yourself into the warm, healing waters of your swim spa, the buoyancy of the water offers you support in your movements. Not only will you improve your flexibility and strength, you’ll be able to increase your endurance — which translates onto solid ground, knocking down those obstacles in your recovery process.
Incorporating aquatic therapy in an Endless Pools® into your physical therapy program also means you’ll have a safer space to move about. Whole-body exercises like walking can seem out of your reach. Not only does buoyancy help with smaller movements, you’ll receive the support you need for skills that present gravity challenges. You’ll feel safer and more confident knowing the water will catch you if you fall.
Tailored to You
One of the most wonderful things about having a swim spa for your aquatic therapy? It completely tailors to your skill level. This means you’ll be able to start as light as you need. It also gives you the ability to adjust the current to increase the challenge as you get stronger. The roomy design is perfect for two or more people if you need some assistance as you get started. And don’t forget the swim spa accessories! A treadmill, rowing bar, or aquatic bike allows you versatility in your exercise options. So even after you’ve healed from your surgery or injury, you’ll still reap a host of benefits from your Endless Pools. It’s the perfect space to continue a life-long fitness program!
The Right Mindset
While a swim spa is absolutely one of the best tools for healing in your physical therapy program, it’s also fantastic for mental health. Studies show that aerobic exercises like swimming, walking, or jogging lowers anxiety and depression. And guess what you can do in your Endless Pools? All of the above! Installing your spa in the backyard for some sunshine, fresh air, and a great workout can change your outlook on life. It can even help you break the curse of insomnia as it resets your body’s internal clock. The warm waters raise your body’s core temperature in a sleep-supporting way, disrupting anxious thoughts that keep you up at night.
