The strategic use of HydroWorx has in some cases helped us rewrite exercise progressions for athletes returning from injuries. The old standard protocol of return to sport on certain injuries and certain surgeries, we have to take a fresh look at that now because we can utilize the HydroWorx in ways that 10 years ago we didn't even think about doing.

It is an amazing state of the art option to incorporate into a patient's rehabilitation program. We have been able to progress patient's programs more quickly with so many different diagnoses...
— Kelly McFarland, PT, DPT and Owner
We chose the HydroWorx 500 over other competing pools because they have the best design for the rehabilitation of our patient population.
— Dr. Michael J. Velsmid, DPT, MS, President/Director
Due in large part to the HydroWorx 500, this has been our fastest growing clinic yet. It was a great decision.
— Eric Tarr, PT, OCS President, Generations R.C., Inc.
We were able to retro fit the HydroWorx Pool above ground in our 5000 sqft. outpatient facility and the results we have seen with patients ranging from pediatric to geriatric have been excellent.

Our HydroWorx 750 allows us to provide that extra "something" that gives us an edge. This results in better outcomes and improved function for our patients.
— Dan Lent-Koop, MPT, CHT at Orleans Park Performance and Rehab
What we've seen through the use of the underwater treadmill has been absolutely incredible. We had a woman who could not stand or walk for approximately more than 10 minutes a time and she was able to do 40 minutes on the treadmill and was gleaming from ear to ear.

Pools for Professionals
These warm water aquatic therapy pools are filled with innovations designed to create an environment ideal for muscle recovery and revitalization. HydroWorx’s ThermalPlunge pools are equipped with thermal heating units to distribute warm or hot water (94° - 104°) to relax tight muscles and stimulate the release of endorphins. Powerful massage hoses easily attach for specific deep tissue therapy.
ThermalPlunge pool therapy heats muscle and tissue to increase circulation and restore blood flow to the body. The warmth of the water promotes a transient reduction in joint stiffness, pain and muscle spasms. It can also help to reduce inflammation. The typical temperature of a hot pool ranges from 94° - 104°F to relax tight muscles and stimulate the release of endorphins. HydroWorx ThermalPlunge pool models also come with an attachable massage hose to offer a deep penetrating massage to sore areas of the body, further enhancing muscle recovery.
“Getting your neuromuscular and endocrine systems regenerated can steepen the dose-response relationship to the training. Passive recovery is certainly important, but ‘active’ recovery techniques using HydroWorx are catalyzing our regeneration timelines.” – Lance Walker, Director of Performance at Michael Johnson Performance.
Clinical studies supporting the benefits of aquatics are ample, and we have listed many relevant examples on our Research & Education page. A number of studies have looked specifically at the benefits of exercise in a hot water environment and found equally encouraging results.
A 1996 study of older adults found clinically significant range of motion improvements in the shoulders and hips, increased shoulder and quadriceps strength, and improved walking speed. The study — which involved 24 sessions in a 94°F therapeutic pool, held over a period of 12 weeks — concluded that the exercise led to “significant improvements in reported pain and in social function”(Activities, Adaptation & Aging. 1996; 20(3): 75-85).
A more recent case study of a 33 year old woman with multiple sclerosis found that regular aquatics in a 94°F therapy pool was “associated with the improvement in functional abilities.” The patient was monitored for body temperature, heart rate and other factors, and found no instances of heat or fatigue as a result of exercise in the hot water environment (Physical Therapy. 2001 April; 81(4): 1049-1058).
