When working in the water you can apply wide and fluid movements, tractions, and stretches. All these factors converge different stimuli for the nervous system, making treatment varied and enriching the result.
Physiotherapy pools are also ideal for treating older adults who have reduced mobility and low strength. In this case, allowing simple and beneficial exercises that can be difficult outside the pool.
