Benefits of Water Exercise
The benefits of water rehabilitation are well known. Rehab patients who have suffered strokes, endured sports injuries or experienced major traumas, not to mention those who have undergone elective surgery, may all benefit from the unique properties of water buoyancy.
But water isn’t only effective for rehab patients—it’s also a great pain reliever for people suffering from arthritis, back or joint problems. It’s also a fun and easy alternative for those just wanting to add variety to their exercise routine. Water exercise is easily adaptable to most people's desires, needs and abilities. Some of the benefits of water exercise include:
- Less impact on joints.
- Increased strength, muscle tone, flexibility, range of motion.
- Increased endurance, balance and coordination.
- Increased oxygen/circulation.
No matter if you’re interested in preventing injury, maintaining health and strength or are recovering from an injury or illness, water exercise may be helpful in enhancing your overall fitness level. So grab your bathing suit, and head to the nearest pool or lake.
Note: You should consult with your physician before starting any exercise regime.
