A long view of aquatic therapy shows the evolutionary progress, By Lynda Huey, M.S.

Today, no-one doubts the benefits of aquatic therapy. But before you jump in the pool, understand the intricacies of underwater workouts – and how they differ from on-land training.

Ultra Sport

Training – Hydro Power, by Dan Zevin

Water provides a natural resistance that’s 12 to 14 times greater than that of air, so your muscles work harder than they would on land. The real degree of resistance is up to you, depending on the intensity of your personal regimen.

Water Power, by Kim Hansen

Water therapy is one of those “miracles” used in rehabilitating a whole range of sprains, strains, dislocations and fractures. More specifically, exercising in water is becoming the standard treatment for injured athletes. Water accelerates healing by improving circulation to the injured body part so that it does not stiffen up and lose all motion.

You don’t have to swim… To get a workout in the water, by Lynda Huey

Think of a swimming pool as a complete gym – cardiovascular, strength training, stretching, says Lynda Huey. “Anyone who has had experience with water exercise understands that it’s a synthesis of the best of all worlds.” Any movement or technique done on land can be done in the water, says Huey, and you can do more repetitions because there isn’t as much impact.

Water Workout: Cool in the Pool, by Kevyn Allard

Water exercise is a wonderful workout at any level of fitness because it allows you to determine your own level of intensity. The water reacts to whatever resistance you apply – the harder you push against it, the harder it pushes back.

Swim Gym, by Mary Harding

The buoyancy of water allows you to run, jump and stretch without over-stressing your weight-bearing joints. That’s why water exercise is the perfect exercise option for folks with back pain or knee problems.

Treating the Pain of Fibromyalgia in Water, by Lynda Huey

Fibromyalgia patients are notoriously deconditioned; they often can’t walk, use a bicycle, or go to the gym without incurring more pain. The water, however, helps improve fitness while simultaneously treating aches and pains. Water’s buoyancy virtually eliminates gravity’s pull on the body, which relieves stress on painful tissues and joints and provides an ease of movement not possible on land.

Great Looks, ‘Teen Special

Just Add Water

Water offers 3-D resistance. When you move arms and legs forward, they must go backward. No matter which way you move, you’re always working against the water. This means you get a well-balanced muscle workout, resulting in more pleasing, less bunchy muscle tone.

Tips For Healthy Hips, by Lynda Huey

Water exercise is the best therapy for those recovering from either hip replacement surgery or arthroscopic hip surgery, a minimally invasive procedure that “cleans out” your hip joint. “You need to regain balanced strength in the muscles surrounding your hip joint as well as regain your hip’s full range of motion,” says Dr Robert Klapper. “This is best done in the water.”

Water Running, It looks weird, but it works, by Bob Cooper

Water’s buoyancy lets you run, walk, jump, bounce, stretch, pivot – make any movement – without the jolts that could cause injuries if they were to occur on land. At the same time, water acts as a cushion for your weight-bearing joints; it is resisting you, causing your muscles to work harder than if you were simply moving your arms or legs through air.

The Water Way with Lynda Huey, by Paul Cohen

Water workouts coincide with a person’s strength level; you provide the force and water will supply the proper amount of resistance. Using weights in water, unlike in the gym, is always an all-out effort because water exercise uses resistance in all directions, thereby promoting cardiovascular conditioning, body toning and strength.

There’s something magical about water workouts, and something magical about what they do for your body and soul.

Water as a Healing Factor, with Lynda Huey

When Wilt Chamberlain injured himself in 1985 while playing raquetball, Lynda Huey developed exercises he could do in his spa. “He had torn most of his triceps tendon away from the bone,” Huey said. After surgery and a cast, Chamberlain’s goal was to reverse the atrophy that had set in and rebuild strength and motion.

Water Works, by Lynda Huey

When you think of aquatic fitness, do you picture a dozen women in shower caps armed with foam noodles? Or maybe an athlete relegated to jogging around in the pool to rehab a nagging injury? Sure, water exercises provide a low-to-no-impact workout for those who can’t tolerate pounding on their joints. But no matter how fit you are, workign out in the water can be a fun, challenging and high-intensity training routine.

Wilt Chamberlain and the Water, by Lynda Huey

In 1989 Wilt Chamberlain again required surgery. This time he needed a high tibial osteotomy, which carved a wedge of bone out of the tibia (shin bone) and realigned the knee joint. There was no cast, only a brace on the leg. Therefore, once the incision had healed, Chamberlain began deep-water exercise to regain muscle strength and joint mobility.

They said you couldn’t get hurt in the water. They said the water was the safest place for anyone to do a fitness or therapy program. “They” included me.

For stretching, water can’t be beat. Your body relaxes like nowhere else, and this promotes comfortable, rhythmic breathing which aids your stretching.

The benefits of water training can be enormous – even for the fittest of the fit.

The solution? Water rehabilitation.

The Waterpower Warm-Down, by Lynda Huey

When you finish a high-intensity run, bike ride, or weight workout, your muscles feel heavy. If your exercise was stopped abruptly, the muscles are left with large volumes of waste-laden blood.
