Participants of Warm water aquatics have shown improved function more rapidly than traditional land therapies. Water helps reduce inflammation, and decreases pressure on injured joints while increasing blood circulation, allowing an injured area to be exercised sooner. Children are more comfortable in warm water and therefore more willing to try new skills. Water resistance and warm temperatures relaxes muscles, thereby reducing spasticity and pain. With water therapy, tolerance of exercise is greatly increased; participants exercise more frequently and get well quicker! Due to physical properties of water, people can exercise and move in ways not possible on land.
