Cold water PT
#1
Can doing aqua PT be okay in cold water? The last two visits to PT the heater has not been working right so the water has been cold. Now not oh my God cold but not the 90 degrees he says the gauge says. And he agrees it is not right and has asked for it to be fixed. Trouble is the place they rent the space from is not very good at fixing things.
But back to the question can the colder water still be okay? I feel tense when I get in the water and get use to the temp but I want to get my stuff done and get out. And not hang in the deep in at all and relax after I'm done

No way could I DO PT in cold water.

I would think the therapist would want you to make progress not regress.

Do you feel like your tense when you get out? The large lap pools that I have been in before a few years ago were cold because you get warm while exercising by swimming constantly for an hour. But if your pretty sedentary while in the cold water, it won't do much for relaxing you and make your muscles more tense. If your shivering cold in the pool, I would wait until the heater is fixed before going again.

I'm not shivering when I'm in the pool it's just not very warm. I do feel like I tense up getting in but don't really feel bad when i get out but I also now only get what I need done and get out. I'm sure that it is better if I can spend more time in the deep end and hang some. That really seems to help as much as anything. I'm not doing that much in the water to really get warmed up.

Sounds like your experience there is not pleasant. Personally, I would wait until the water is warmer and more beneficial. Sounds like your rushing when you should be relaxing especially at the end of your session.
Hopefully they will have it fixed soon!

When I had water pt at the ymca, there therapy pools were set between 80 and 90. I can not stay in a pool very long if its below 75 my muscles cramp up in my injured leg. There were many days I had to get out of the pool and sit in the hot tub just so I could walk to the showers. It is my understanding you need to warm up before excersising and don't see much sense in cooling them back down while your trying to strengthen e.t.c.

If it is not harming you and you can tolerate it, I recommend doing it rather than delay the aqua therapy...unless they can send you to another facility. I don't know what state you are in but many in my state many have to fight to get aqua therapy.

If it is painful due to the cold, then I would not go.
