In the United States, an estimated 50 million Americans suffer from persistent chronic pain any given year. These individuals have an undiminishing pain lasting for over three months. At Classic Rehabilitation, Inc. we understand that chronic pain does not just affect the individual but those who surround them as well. We also know that medication and surgery can take a toll on a patient’s body reducing their overall self-esteem and overall quality of life. For this exact reason aquatic (water) therapy is becoming increasingly popular. Aquatic therapy has been proven to decrease chronic pain, speed up recovery time, and improve the patient’s overall function. The exercises may be engaged in a pool to assist the healing and exercising performances. Since many patients are incapable of beginning most forms of physical and occupational therapy due to their pain levels, aquatic therapy allows for the patient to have weightlessness, all in all decreasing their discomfort.
Exercising releases endorphins in the brain while simultaneously reducing pain and healing the patient’s body. With the elevated water levels in the pool, the patient’s body becomes more buoyant which decreases the amount of weight on the joints and muscles. This process leads to elimination of the constant tension, pressure and stress the muscles and joints are experiencing. Thermal benefits provide sensory stimulation to the patient’s entire body creating a kinesthetic awareness of the body and helping the body relax and relieve stress. Additionally, localizing the areas of pain in the warm water with massage reduces the patient’s overall discomfort. The focus of hydromassage is to allow the patient to get a focused massage for sore and aching muscles and to reduce joint pain. Here at Classic Rehabilitation, Inc. we use the warm water of the HydroWorx therapeutic pool to stimulate the entire body’s pain locations. Moreover, the HydroWorx massage system allows the patient to control the position and strength of the jets to provide optimal comfort.
