Aquatic Exercises For Chronic Pain Reduces The Incidence Of Flare Ups

Nov 8

Pain is a normal part of the human experience and it can serve a purpose, letting us know when our body needs healing. But when pain becomes constant and interferes with our daily activities, it can be debilitating. It is important to seek treatment for chronic pain, as it can cause other symptoms such as low self-esteem and depression. One treatment option is water-based exercise. Studies have shown that Aquatic Exercises for Chronic Pain can alleviate a number of conditions including back pain, arthritis, and fibromyalgia, as well as improve strength, balance, flexibility, and lymphoedema, and reduce anxiety and depression caused by chronic pain.

Water-based exercise is a great way to get a workout without the harsh heat of Las Vegas. Water provides natural resistance that helps build muscle and enhances joint mobility. This is especially helpful for people with hip, knee, or leg injuries. In fact, one study found that after 12 weeks of water aerobics, participants showed a significant improvement in both flexibility and muscular strength.

Compared to land-based exercises, water workouts are lower in intensity, but they provide the same cardiovascular benefits as traditional exercise. The buoyancy of the water also supports your body, which eliminates the stress on joints that is often present with arthritic or rheumatic conditions.

The warm water provides direct relief to pain, allowing you to perform gentle exercises with greater ease. And the water’s pressure stimulates the release of endorphins, chemicals that foster a sense of happiness and act as the body’s natural painkillers. These chemicals interact with opioid receptors in the brain to create an analgesic effect, but without the side effects of prescription pain medications.

Studies have also shown that water-based exercises can help alleviate a range of other chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, and spinal disk herniations. The therapists at the Aquatic Therapy & Fitness Center can design an appropriate program to meet your specific needs.
