Aquatic Therapy for Health Conditions - Treating Health Conditions with SwimEx


SwimEx swim spa pools effectively treat a number of health conditions.

Arthritis & Fibromyalgia
Aquatic Therapy can ease the symptoms and pain of both Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. A key treatment for both is relaxation.

Aquatic Therapy For Arthritis & Fibromyalgia Aquatic Therapy can ease the symptoms and pain of both Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. Generally, arthritis (there are more than 100 types) is inflammation of a joint that causes stiffness, swelling, redness and pain. Similarly, fibromyalgia is characterized by chronic pain, stiffness, and tenderness in joints, muscles and tendons. A key treatment for both is relaxation.

Combining the warm water of a SwimEx pool with a spa jet massage stimulates the senses and relaxes the body, greatly reducing the stress and pain on aching muscles and joints. Massage is another key therapy, but you don’t need access to a professional masseuse every day when you have our massage wand. It gives you a focused, penetrating massage for sore and chronically aching muscles, which also helps relieve joint pain. This pool therapy allows you to penetrate arthritic joints or manipulate scar tissue.

What’s more, studies show that exercising in warm water can help decrease the painful side effects of these two conditions, strengthen muscles and joints, and improve flexibility. And in chest-high water, your body is 80% weightless! Since the pool water is bearing the majority of your weight, stress on joints and muscles is greatly reduced. That makes walking and running exercise without increased pain a possibility. Add our integrated underwater treadmill with adjustable speed, or exercise against our paddlewheel system current to gain all the benefits of exercising in warm water.

An added bonus: underwater exercise will help you fight off weight gain while increasing your range of motion in arthritic joints.
