All exercises begin with firing of transverse abdominis (TA) and the Stabilizer monitors this position.
Patients sometimes do too much during their first visit and are sore the next day. Be conservative that first day.
Evidence-based research: There are several studies on the beneficial effects of aquatic therapy on those with low back pain.
When standing chest deep in water, the body is 80% weightless, bearing only 20% of its weight. This weightlessness helps with exercises and movements that could otherwise be too difficult.
Because the water is a thicker medium than air, by moving in the water the amount of resistance from the water can range from 4 to 44 times that of air. Using the resistance of the water in exercise is like exercising with weights or machines on land, but safer.
In chest deep water, approximately 90% of your body weight is buoyant, therefore you really are bearing only 10% of your weight when you exercise. Exercise in the water is much safer an your joints and muscles; virtually stress-free.
The water temperature is the same all year long. You do not need to contend with the variability of the elements; heat, cold, rain, snow, etc.
The hydrostatic pressure; the pressure of the water on your body, joints, muscles and internal organs, massages and comforts your body while you exercise. You never feel fatigued.
