Backs To The Future
Gravity is especially merciless as we age and often compounded by carrying extra pounds. One of the most common benefits, reported by AquaJogger® users, is relief from back pain. This is not surprising since you weigh only ten percent of what you do on land when suspended up to your neck in a vertical position in water. Add to this a gentle traction created by your AquaJogger buoyancy belt and you open doors to movements denied by gravity. Just make sure the belt of your AquaJogger® buoyancy belt is pulled tight and its arms are positioned just under your ribcage. This allows your upper body to be gently lifted upward as your lower body drifts toward the bottom of the pool. Now the joints in your low back, hips, knees and ankles are no longer weight bearing and you just got part of your life back.
Another tool in overcoming the malice of gravity is inversion therapy. It is synergistic with a water exercise program and adds its own benefits. The best one we have come across is one called The Back Revolution. They have a great story. Check it out.
