It is the last thing you want to do when healing from a disc injury to perform some sort of exercise that exerts extra pressure on your spine. This is why it is so critical for aquatic therapy. There are a lot of explanations why it is so helpful. Have a look at Sensory Deprivation for more info on this.
Next, the water’s buoyancy minimises the weight load on the spine. When you are underwater up to your chest, three fourths of your body weight is protected by buoyancy. Weak muscles are often assisted by buoyancy, reducing the likelihood of injury due to a loss of balance or accidental movements, and creating less impact on the joints. Imagine standing on asphalt, jumping up and landing as high as you can. When you land, a lot of impact and pressure is put on your lower spine.
Now imagine jumping in waist high water the same way. You almost float down through the water when you fall down, landing gently and controlled, creating much less impact and compression on the spine. Jumping up in water is often much harder, which brings up another gain – drag, or resistance. Natural resistance is produced by water, allowing muscle strength to build. The pool is the ideal transition to return to strength training in the gym from inactivity. Your abs, lower back, and legs will all benefit greatly from training in water resistance. In order to increase resistance more, floats and light weights may also be applied to the water regime.
Another advantage of water conditioning is that it helps to improve stabilisation of the lower back and core muscles and, in turn, balance and stability. In addition, it helps to increase your range of motion. The advantages of training in the pool are numerous, as you can see.
And more are there. Hydrostatic water pressure helps to boost the function of the heart and lungs and helps blood flow to the muscles. The water’s warmth helps relax tight muscles and decreases pain. The sound of water appears to have a soothing effect and can also help to reduce pain perception.
