Aquatic Therapy at FIVAN

Thetherapyaquatic It has been and is one of the most effective treatments for a multitude of pathologies in terms of rehabilitation thanks to its physical properties. Warm water and the characteristics of the aquatic environment offer a series of benefits and opportunities to work on the recovery of patients with various neurological pathologies.

It combines a series of active, passive, assisted exercises and maneuvers performed by the patient themselves with help if necessary from the therapist or a family member to work on the objectives set. ANDIt is a very effective technique since itallows you to work on exercises and postures that would be very difficult outside of waterThe pool is an enriched environment in which learning is facilitated due to its less restrictive and integrative conditions while promoting social inclusion.

Some of thebenefits of the therapeutic pool in neurological rehabilitation include:

  1. Buoyancy: Water provides buoyancy, which reduces body weight and decreases the load on the joints and spine. This makes it easier to perform movements and exercises that may be difficult to do on land.

  2. Resistance: Water generates resistance to movement, which helps strengthen muscles and improve patients' motor control.

  3. Hydrostatic: The hydrostatic pressure of water improves blood circulation and venous return, which can be beneficial in reducing edema and promoting wound healing.

  4. Muscle relaxation: The warm temperature of the water promotes muscle relaxation and a decrease in spasticity in patients with neurological disorders.

  5. Sensory stimulation: The aquatic environment offers a variety of sensory stimuli that can be useful in neurological rehabilitation, such as tactile and proprioceptive stimulation.

  6. Improved balance and coordination: The inherent instability of the aquatic environment provides an opportunity to work on improving balance and coordination in patients with neurological disorders.

 

We use the therapeutic pool in the neurological rehabilitation of patients with various conditions, such as cerebral palsy, strokes, traumatic brain injuries and degenerative diseases. Aquatic therapy should be guided by a specialized physiotherapist and be part of a multidisciplinary approach to the patient's rehabilitation.
