When you can’t lift your arms, pick up objects or sleep comfortably due to shoulder pain and stiffness, your overall health and well-being also suffers.

When you don’t want to take drugs or even think about surgery, try aquatic therapy today!
Benefits of Aquatic Therapy in Baltimore County
Water provides more resistance to movement than air. Swimming or walking in water gives you the same exercise advantages you would get if you exercised while wearing wrist or ankle weights. Water also makes your muscular and circulatory systems work harder to overcome this resistance.
Aquatic therapy is an effective, low-impact treatment for shoulder conditions and injuries. Performing rehabilitative exercises in water improves blood circulation to injured shoulder joints and tissue so that cells receive nutrients essential for pain relief. Additionally, heart and respiratory benefits of aquatic therapy encourages cells to eliminate toxins from your body to promote healing and recovery.
Enjoying regular aquatic therapy sessions at our chiropractic center not only builds muscle strength and joint flexibility but may also help reduce your risk of osteoporosis and degenerative bone disorder. Moreover, aquatic therapy is ideal for senior citizens and for people with physical disabilities.
