Ultimate Swim Spa Guide

A swim spa is best for rehabilitation

Using a swim spa can help you rehabilitate more quickly and easily from accidents, sports injuries or joint pain. Young or old, whether training for a triathlon or recovering from hip surgery, it offers amazing benefits for people of all ages and health conditions.

Water acts as a full-body support, making it easier to balance as you exercise, without fear of falling. The same movements that might have been difficult on land result in less tension, frustration and pain. Also, warm water loosens joints and muscles, and a variable swim spa current allows anyone to enjoy simple exercises or more intense workouts.

Water workouts for mind and body

Stress can manifest itself in so many ways. Water therapy helps to manage anxiety. Simply swimming, floating or even pedaling in the warm water eases tension. It can also improve circulation, allowing you to feel stronger and renewed both physically and mentally.

Here are some of the beneficial outcomes you can expect from a swim spa from SwimEx:

  • Recover faster from injury and training
  • Develop muscle strength and endurance
  • Increase range of motion and flexibility
  • Build power, speed and agility

Health benefits of a swim spa

Here’s how the stress-free and supportive environment of water helps to heal, recover and rehabilitate from some common health conditions:

One way to manage the chronic pain of rheumatic conditions is to find ways to relax joints, muscles, and tendons. The warm water in a swim spa helps minimize both stiffness and stress. Due to the weightlessness of the body in water, there will be no pressure on your joints, and therefore, no additional pain. Exercise by walking slowly against the supportive current to work on balance or turn up the speed of the current to swim, run, and get a full body workout.

Hydrotherapy is becoming a more common method for rehabilitation at physical therapy clinics, and these same exercises can be done in your own home swim spa to minimize Parkinson’s symptoms.

A pool can help with the treatment of neuromuscular conditions. Due to water’s buoyancy, it is easier to move and there is minimal pain and joint stress. This helps build the confidence to exercise often to help mitigate common symptoms such as:
  • muscle spasms and weak muscles
  • pain
  • joint range of motion
  • poor balance
  • impaired coordination.
Swim spas with built-in stairs or chair lifts make getting in and out of the pool easier. Underwater cameras can also be installed to help work on correct form while exercising. This can be an invaluable tool for anyone re-learning how to walk.
Aquatic therapy in a home current pool relieves stress by creating a relaxing warm water experience for someone dealing with chronic pain. With minimized pressure on joints and less pain while exercising, it’s easier to complete rehab, recovery and daily exercise routines needed to stay healthy.

Hydrotherapy is an increasingly popular treatment for injuries and on-going medical conditions. Anyone – from elite sports teams to senior living centers – can utilize water’s unique properties for recovery and rehabilitation. Whether you’re recovering from an injury, or going through knee surgery rehab, water therapy is an incredibly effective tool. It helps in recovery and even better, allows you to maintain fitness as you regain your health.

The best swim spas can work wonders for seniors who are looking to increase their health, fitness, and well-being. For example:
  • Improved mental health – any exercise releases endorphins, reducing stress and increasing happiness.
  • Healthier heart – water workouts improve cardiovascular health and build a stronger heart. Swimming can lower blood pressure in older adults.
  • Stronger bones – reduce the risk of osteoporosis by exercising to strengthen bones and muscles. Different current speeds in a swim spa let you slowly increase the water flow as you gain confidence and strength.
  • Increased muscle strength – similar to building stronger bones, pool exercises improve muscular strength.
  • Better flexibility – exercise, especially swimming, improves leg, hip, neck and arm flexibility.
  • Reach a healthy weight – working out and swimming in your own swim spa is both a comfortable and convenient way to exercise. It helps to tone up and reduce body fat.
