Passive aquatic therapy will benefit those who are difficulty working on functional activities secondary to pain, muscle spasm or spasticity.
Aquatherapy may be utilised for the following systems: Physiological, pulmonary, musculaskeletal, proprioceptive, vestibular, tactile, visual and auditory in order to enhance one’s motor planning, bilateral integration and coordination.
Chronic Disease & Lifestyle Management
Chronic conditions such as Diabetes, Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Parkinson’s disease and various cardiac conditions can inhibit one’s usual activities of daily living.
Pain and decreased mobility often causes one to lead a sedentary and passive lifestyle which further increases one’s stiffness and immobility.
Fall Risk Screening
Normal balance is controlled by a complex combination of visual, muscular and neurological systems.
These factors prevent us from falling when we encounter an unexpected disturbance.
Testing and, if necessary, exercise will improve an individual’s ability to regain upright under challenging conditions, and therefore to improve mobility and maintain independence.
For most back problems, exercise and movement are the natural stimuli for the healing process.
Controlled gradual and progressive exercise, rather than inactivity and bed rest, most often provides the best long-term solution for reducing back pain and preventing future episodes of pain.
Exercise plays a dual role of both treating back pain and helping prevent future occurrence of pain.
Orthopaedic & sport
Exercise plays an important role in treating a person to prevent an operation, or to fully rehabilitate the patient once surgery has been completed.
In this instance, Biokinetics forms the final phase in the rehabilitation chain before the patient is to resume normal pre-injury functionality, whether it is on the sport field or just normal daily living.
