Here’s a shout out to the NFL football teams who use SwimEx therapy pools for aquatic exercise and therapy. The NFL draft that just passed marks the beginning of football season. Here’s a showcase of some SwimEx football champions.

1. Atlanta Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons have had great success the last two seasons. In 2016 they won the NFC South division, and the NFC title. They represented the NFC in the Super Bowl but fell short. In 2017 the Falcons made it back to the playoffs.

The Falcons use a SwimEx 600 T DW.

Therapy Pools

The 600 T DW aquatic therapy pool is a powerful therapy pool with a water 99-speed water current and the advantage of a deep-water running well that adds either 12” (30.5 cm) or 24” (61 cm) to the pool depth.  The deep-water well is designed for total non-weight bearing rehabilitation and conditioning applications for more aggressive therapy. This aquatic machine features eight distinct easy-to-identify colored performance zones, eight tethering ports to lock in a patient during non-weight bearing protocols and a running platform. For additional versatility, a 4′ extension can be added to include an integrated underwater treadmill.

2. Baltimore Ravens

Two-time Super Bowl Champions (2000, 2012), this tough and competitive team have a SwimEx 600 T DW hydrotherapy pool so they can harness water power for a superior way to rehabilitate, recover, train and condition their athletes.

Warm water pools with a water current like the SwimEx 600 T DW create exceptional resistance for additional support, increased intensity, and maximum versatility. These specific therapy pools can vary in depth and offer different performance zones for walking, running, swimming, full body exercises, and deep water treatments.

3. Denver Broncos

Three-time Super Bowl Champions (1997, 1998, 2015). When opposing teams play in Denver, there are always challenges due to their passionate fans and the elevation change.

The Broncos are currently renovating their hydrotherapy room. Their new SwimEx 1000 T therapy pool includes a zero entry lift that doubles as a multi-depth workstation, as well as SwimEx custom plunge pools.

4.  Green Bay Packers

One of the most historical franchises in the National Football League, they are four-time Super Bowl Champions (1966, 1967, 1996, 2010).

Therapy Pools

The athletic training room includes 2 custom hot plunge pools (12’ and 18’) and a 24’ 6” custom cold plunge.  Notice the custom steps and lengths that provide easy in-and-out access for the players.

For the pool, Director of Sports Medicine Administration for the Packers, Pepper Burruss, chose to use his current SwimEx that he custom designed 15 years ago and still loves. It is a SwimEx 600 T with a 24” deep well.

 

5. Indianapolis Colts

Therapy Pools

Two-time Super Bowl Champions (1970, 2006). This fiercely competitive team uses a 600 T DW for their hydrotherapy. This ultimate training tool is a win win for the athletes and the team.

Hydrotherapy is a low impact tool that yields high impact results with limited joint stress and muscle fatigue. It’s a safe environment where athletes achieve intense workouts without risking injury. From upper body exercises, running, conditioning, and sports specific drills, there is no limit to what can be accomplished with a therapy pool.

In addition, athletes recover faster with aquatic therapy following an injury. During rehabilitation, treatment can be implemented before land therapy protocols for earlier injury intervention. Aquatic therapy keeps athletes conditioned as they recover so they are ready to play as soon as they are back in the game.

6. Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars entered the NFL in 1995 with early playoff success in the 90’s. They are a team on team to watch, after winning the AFC South division and getting to the AFC Championship game last season. The Jaguars use SwimEx hot and cold plunge pools.

Therapy Pools

Champions are made on and off the field.  Yet success can be directly related to how fast athletes rehabilitate from injury or recover after practice. Choosing the right plunge pools can mean the difference between winning and losing.

There are basically two types of plunge pools – cold and hot.  Both are used to achieve specific treatment outcomes. Cold plunges reduce muscle inflammation by decreasing lactic acid build up. When used post exercise, athletes gain the beneficial effects of working out with less pain and muscle soreness.  Hot plunge pools can be used before working out to increase blood flow, flexibility and loosen muscles. Increased flexibility leads to less muscle strain and more productive exercise sessions or rehabilitation.

 7. New England Patriots

Arguably the most successful NFL franchise ever, they are five-time Super Bowl Champions (2001, 2003, 2004, 2014, 2016). They have won the AFC East Division 15 times since 2001, and have gone to the AFC Championship 12 times since 2001.

Their 600 T SwimEx therapy pool is the most powerful aquatic therapy machine in the SwimEx line-up.  In addition to the pool, the New England Patriots have a custom plunge pool for their training facility with an extra long side seat to accommodate for more players.

Therapy Pools

SwimEx plunge pools come in four standard sizes, can be delivered in sections for tight installations, have bottom drains for easy maintenance, and can be custom designed to meet specific treatment protocols.

 

 

Professionals around the world choose SwimEx for progressive treatment outcomes and advanced training programs. SwimEx pools offer superior water current technology, custom interiors, and solid fiberglass construction.
