Sports injury rehabilitation is based on several different things. The key is to return the body to normal function. Depending on the type of injury, there can be lots of different areas of dysfunction. The most common of these are mobility restrictions, strength deficits, and balance deficits.
The body is made up of hundreds of joints. Each joint has normal range of motions, as well as muscles that move the joint. If there are restrictions in the mobility of the joint, or in the efficiency of the muscles, dysfunction occurs.

Aquatic Therapy is a great way to rest and rehab your overused muscles or injuries while continuing to workout at an intense level. Some people prefer to supplement their land-based exercises with workouts in a pool since exercising in water reduces the stress on joints and muscles that happens with land-based exercises.
The buoyancy of water allows you to continue running on the underwater treadmill or do exercises against the resistance jets. This enables you to maintain your fitness level even when your muscles are fatigued or injured.
After a hard workout, treat yourself to a deep penetrating massage to decrease lactic acid build-up in overworked muscles. This is a great feature for overall pain management.
Benefits of Aquatic Therapy for Overuse or Athletic Injuries:
- Increased mobility and strength
- Maintain fitness levels
- Decrease swelling
- Pain relief
- Removes weight from joints and bones
