Working out in an Aquatic Therapy Pool

Have you heard of swim spas? Just like a regular spa rejuvenates, a swim spa achieves the same result, and more.

Aquatic therapy pools are not only used for rejuvenating the body, they are also used for training as in supplementing athletes land workouts with the underwater treadmill and resistance jets for joint-friendly training or conditioning.

These aquatic therapy pools, from HydroWorx, are used for therapy by clinicians - physical therapists and orthopedic surgeons. Treating patients earlier help them recover faster with the HydroWorx therapy jets, underwater treadmill and massage system. Combining professional grade quality with state-of-the-art technology makes HydroWorx's therapy pools the most advanced, highly-functional aquatic therapy equipment on the market.

For home use, there are two series, the T-Series and the L-Series.

The T-series is very spacious, suitable for advanced fitness or rehabilitation; underwater treadmill, resistance jets and massage included.

The L-Series lap pool offers spacious stairs and bench seating for up to six people. The water treadmill and resistance swim jet systems provide a joint-friendly workout.

These pools not only rejuvenate the mind and body, they offer therapy and rehabilitate people with conditions such as Parkinson's, arthritis, post-polio, fibromyalgia, and so on.

HydroWorx has an extensive range of different models of professional aquatic therapy pools, each with its benefits and uses and one to meet any user's needs.

Their Thermal Plunge pools, for instance, enhance recovery through heat therapy. These warm water pools are filled with innovations designed to create the ultimate recovery and revitalizing environment. Warm or hot water (94° - 104°) relaxes tight muscles and stimulate the release of endorphins. Powerful massage hoses easily attach for specific deep tissue therapy. I am sure I will enjoy this one after a long hard day in the office.

Their Polar Plunge pools or cold water pools on the other hand, keeping water temperatures at a therapeutic 50° help control joint inflammation and enhance muscle recovery. Strategic jets can be positioned in any format including trigger point patterns for a soothing massage while powerful massage hoses easily attach for specific deep tissue therapy.

English Premier League Champions, Manchester United, one of the most successful clubs in England, has a HydroWorx pool installed at their Carrington Training Centre to better provide their footballers with all-round conditioning and strengthening.

Chelsea FC and Aston Villa FC also have the facility in their training centre. It is not surprising as every day, over 15,000 athletes and patients use HydroWorx technology to recover from injuries and health conditions.

Other sports clubs owning a HydroWorx aquatic therapy pool include the New South Wales rugby team, Waratahs; and ice hockey team, Ottawa Senators. The prestigious, award-winning, The Shilla Hotel, owned by Samsung Corporation, also has this state-of-the-art HydroWorx aquatic therapy pool.
