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.

Spotlight on Aquatics & Women's Health

There are certain disorders that women face in higher percentages than men (fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, breast cancer) and some disorders that women face alone (pregnancy comes to mind). The pool offers a respite and a place for women to rest and recover. The combination of warmth, pressure, offloading, and graded weight-bearing is difficult to simulate outside the water’s edge. Take for instance individuals diagnosed with fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS); these women often complain of fatigue, stiffness, poor quality sleep, anxiety and stress, headaches, and irritable bowel syndrome. The movement freedom present in water makes it possible for patients to explore their physical limitations without pain, and research has shown that moderate-level exercise in water is one of the answers for FMS. 

Women are diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at a much higher rate than men. As this disease progresses, it can rob women of their ability to move and work and play. Gravity is often the culprit here. In the water, it is possible to combine movements to exercise more efficiently, giving the benefits of movement without the exhaustion of land-based activities. Although it is possible for patients with multiple sclerosis to overheat in water, there are many pools with just the right temperature for this population.

With osteoporosis, the aging process creates a perfect storm of factors which make it less likely for the body to retain its bone mass. After menopause, estrogen levels decline, which—coupled with a reduction in weight-bearing and muscle-stressing activities—reduces the body’s bone formation capacities. Women who cannot exercise safely or painlessly on land can do so in water. And even though the “weight bearing” in water is diminished because of buoyancy’s effect, weight bearing is still present because there is movement. In addition, the body lays down bone in response to the muscle pull on the bone that occurs during exercise. 

The lower extremity edema during pregnancy can be painful and may create vascular changes such as varicosities. Vertical immersion in water results in a hemodynamic shift from the submerged legs upward to an area of lesser pressure, the chest. This shift can reduce edema, effusion and soft tissue and joint swelling in the lower extremities. What’s more, research has shown that the arm lymphedema which accompanies breast cancer surgery or radiation can be reduced by gentle exercises performed in water. Pregnant women have found the pool such an ally that many choose to deliver their babies in water, a technique known as water birth. 

Over the last decade, there have been many researchers interested in exploring these topics. The studies which follow are have been pulled from the last three years.
