Aquatic Health Benefits Bulletin

NSPF provides a monthly Aquatic Health Benefits Bulletin (AHBB), each focusing on a different topic area: athletes and non-impaired, cardiopulmonary & systemic, neurological & cognitive musculoskeletal, pediatric, and women's health. The monthly posts include 300-500 vignettes written in laymen's terms and the corresponding scientific references. The bibliography is organized by a certain topic area with links to publications that are available online. The AHBB is a great resource for the pool and spa industry influencers who want to help build demand for pools, spas, and aquatic facilities by promoting the benefits of water immersion and activity. It is also a perfect way for aquatic leaders to help promote healthier living and reduce drownings.

 

June 2019 - Spotlight on Back Pain

SPOTLIGHT ON AQUATICS &
BACK PAIN

ISSUE ON AQUATIC THERAPY & SPINAL DYSFUNCTION AND DISORDERS

Eighty percent of the general population develop at least one episode of low back pain in their lifetime. Non-specific chronic low back pain (NSCLBP) is a significant cause of morbidity and disability in the population and a large chunk of the population develop chronic symptoms that are – frankly – unresponsive to conventional treatments. Lower back pain is reportedly the fifth most common reason why people see their primary care providers. In the United States alone, an estimated $86 billion per year is spent on therapeutics and management.

 

Some of that change needs to be thrown to the water’s edge. Aquatic therapy and exercise provide patients and clients the twin universes of effort and ease. The buoyancy of the water makes it possible to unload the spine, while the thermal shifts often present in warm water therapy pools comforts the body, creating a swaddling effect. Research has demonstrated that it is possible to challenge the spinal and abdominal muscles in a way in water that is almost unachievable on land. In addition, it is possible to access the human body in the water using the buoyancy effects to make treatments easy to perform. Taken together, these combination of forces make the pool the ideal location to address spinal dysfunction and disorders. To read more about the latest research on this topic, see the studies listed below.
