Warm Water Exercise

Arthritis is a general term describing over 100 different conditions that cause pain, stiffness and often inflammation in one or more joints. Regular gentle exercise can improve an arthritic joint by nourishing the cartilage and easing stiffness.

Warm water exercise (hydrotherapy) is particularly helpful, because your body weight is supported and the resistance of moving through water boosts muscle strength and endurance. Activities such as stretching or walking through water can exercise the joints without putting them under strain.

The benefits of warm water exercise
A Japanese study published in 2002 found that water exercise improved the health of elderly participants. In this study, women between the ages of 60 and 75 years were divided into two groups. One group participated in water exercise for 12 weeks, while the other didn’t.

The health benefits highlighted in the study for those who exercised in water included:

  • Increased muscle strength
  • Enhanced sense of wellbeing, mood and sleep quality
  • Decreased fear of general exercise
  • Improved oxygen intake
  • Greater flexibility
  • Loss of excess body fat
  • Increased agility
  • No exercise-related injuries.

The Hydro-cise Kit is an optional feature on the Paradise. See your Authorised Dealer for details and more information. Consult a Doctor before attempting any warm water exercise.
