Relaxation is one of the most important aspects of controlling any type of chronic pain. Since it’s often difficult to locate the source of the pain, living with chronic pain means dealing with extra stress and frustration. The warm water of the HydroWorx therapeutic pool brings relief by providing sensory stimulation to the entire body. The HydroWorx massage system allows you to control the position and strength of the jets, providing you with optimal comfort.
Exercising has been proven to release endorphins to the brain while reducing pain and helping to heal the body. However, it’s hard to exercise if you’re in a constant state of discomfort. Using a HydroWorx pool means that even those suffering from chronic pain can exercise by walking or running on our variable speed underwater treadmill. This is possible due to the therapeutic properties of water. When standing chest deep in water, the body is 80% weightless, bearing only 20% of its weight. This weightlessness helps with aquatic therapy exercises and movements that could otherwise be too difficult.
