Reducing Pre-season Training Injuries Exclusive land based pre-season training comes with its own share of training injuries leading to a higher percentage of games missed by the athlete. The repeated stress and bone micro-trauma on land with intensive training is one of the most common causes of training injuries. Balancing the training frequency by introducing underwater training helps to significantly reduce the total volume of stress and impact on the joints, thereby significantly reducing the risk of injuries.
Faster Recovery Exercising underwater is much safer when you’re injured than exercising on land. This is because the buoyancy of water ensures minimal impact on the injured joint or ligament as compared to land. The enhanced tolerance to therapy allows the physiotherapist to begin rehabilitation exercises and complex functional exercises much sooner in water compared to land and speeds up the entire rehabilitation journey.
Strengthening and Conditioning
Because water is denser than air, it provides excellent resistance to the moving muscles without the full weight of your body during an exercise. The resistance of water can be further complimented by adding Special Aquatic Resistance training equipment like Push Plates, buoyant dumbells, hand held helmets, foam rollers etc. In addition to this, a motorized wave generator also helps in increasing the turbulence and resistance of the water increasing the complexity of the workout.
Deep tissue and muscle Relaxation Our pools are equipped with a specialised underwater resistance jet that is meant for focused deep tissue release that helps manage post workout muscle soreness and spasms. In addition, our therapy pools are temperature controlled allowing the warmth of the water to aid in muscle relaxation and improve blood flow. Special Aquatic Therapy techniques like Watsu and Ai-Chi are specifically meant for deep relaxation of the mind and body.
