Aquatic Therapy Temperatures

Oct 18, 2010 2:46:13 AM / by Suzanne

Pool temperature makes a difference in how you feel, how your clients feel and what type of therapeutic exercise you’ll use. Remember this concept:

There are two ways to increase body heat: Internally and externally. If your water is warm (94 – 98º) your program should be passive (because you’re heating externally) and if you water is moderate (86 – 90º) your program can be more active (to create heat internally). This works unless you’re working with clients who have thermoregulatory problems.
