Water physiotherapy at the Palazzo Mantegazza pool at Paradiso
The power of water in your rehabilitation journey

Water is a valuable tool in rehabilitation. Because of its resistance and flotation, it allows exercises with less joint impact, facilitating movements that might be painful or difficult on land. Water supports the body, reducing the weight bearing on the joints and allowing a greater range of motion. This is particularly useful in post-traumatic rehabilitation or in patients with degenerative diseases. In addition, the resistance of water contributes to muscle strengthening without the use of additional weights. Water therapy, or hydrotherapy, thus provides a safe and effective environment for functional recovery, accelerating the return to full mobility and independence.

Aftersurgery, water rehabilitation, often called hydrotherapy, offers several advantages over traditional land-based methods. First and foremost, water reduces body weight due to its flotation property. This greatly relieves the joints, allowing the patient to move with less pain and resistance, easing the initial recovery phase. The natural resistance of water aids in muscle strengthening without the use of weights, providing a gradual and adaptive workout.

The water also has a calming and relaxing effect, helping to reduce postoperative stress. The controlled temperature of therapeutic pools can further relieve pain and inflammation. In addition, hydrotherapy can accelerate the healing process by improving circulation and joint mobility. In summary, water rehabilitation after surgery is a gentle but effective approach to ensure quick and complete recovery.

Neurological physiotherapy in water
in the Palazzo Mantegazza pool with specialists from Fisiolab

Water physiotherapy , also known as hydrotherapy, takes on a particularly prominent role in the treatment of neurological patients. The aquatic environment offers a number of unique benefits for these patients. The flotation of water reduces body weight, allowing movements that might be difficult or impossible on land, and giving the patient a feeling of lightness and safety. This environment is especially helpful for those with balance or coordination problems. The resistance of the water also aids in muscle strengthening and motor rehabilitation.

Hydrostatic pressure promotes circulation and reduces edema, while the warmth of the water can relax spastic muscles common in many neurological conditions. Hydrotherapy provides a stimulating and variable environment that can be extremely beneficial for cognitive and sensory recovery. Therefore, for the neurological patient, water physiotherapy is an irreplaceable therapeutic tool.
