Oftentimes, patients are not able to perform the movements necessary for physical therapy on land due to intense pain and physical disabilities. That’s where the healing properties of water come in. Water is a wonderful environment for physical therapy for many reasons. Water’s buoyancy helps support weight and reduces the stress placed on your joints. The viscosity of water helps build muscle strength without the need of clunky weights, while the hydrostatic pressure decreases swelling in the joints.
