Contribution of Aquatic Therapy to Anchylosant Spondylite
Through this paper I wanted to highlight a way of improving the symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis by hydrotherapeutic interventions. The role of aquatic physical activity in this type of condition is to reduce the intensity of the pain and thus prevent the appearance of new symptoms and more pain. Thus, the goal is to have a dynamic life that will change the degree of activity and not lead to unwanted consequences. The purpose of the paper was to show how aquatic rehabilitation techniques can show an improvement in the immobility status of spinal disorders.
Recovery programs that use aquatic exercise as a therapeutic tool in vertebral pathology in the elderly are effective and contribute to the improvement of specific symptomatology. Arthritis is the main cause of long-term physical disability and its prevalence increases with age. Therefore, muscular strengthening is required, which can be achieved by using isometric contractions of stabilization in water. Relaxation can be achieved by floating, using the buoyancy effect. Techniques of holding positions and relaxation methods are predominantly used in the treatment of ankylosing spondylitis and can be used to improve the movement of a joint where muscle spasm is the limiting factor.
