Aquaroll might look like a spa treatment from the outside – and it might even feel somewhat like one when you use it. However, despite appearances, Aquaroll is an advanced form of therapy that has helped many people find better pain relief, improved circulation, and faster recovery from many soft tissue-based injuries. Professional athletes have long used it, and we’re proud to provide it to our patients as well. If you have been struggling with sports injuries, nerve pain, arthritis, or other conditions, Aquaroll may be a recommended treatment for you.
What Does Aquaroll Therapy Do?
Aquaroll therapy stimulates positive natural responses in the body by manipulating 30,000 tiny glass beads within a basin filled with warm water. During a session, a patient submerges their feet within the water. The Aquaroll device then creates a controlled wave effect within the basin, causing the beads to shift, rotate, and vibrate against the feet. As the session continues, we might ask patients to perform certain stretches and range of motion exercises with their feet and ankles. This further enhances the results of the session and aids in the conditioning of weakened or vulnerable areas.
How Can Aquaroll Affect Treatment and Recovery?
Aquaroll is a form of regenerative therapy, meaning its effects lie in triggering or amplifying the body’s natural healing responses. The controlled action of Aquaroll and the way the beads compress and vibrate against the feet stimulates several natural responses:
- Increased blood flow. Blood flow to the area increases – and with it comes more nutrients, growth factors, and other materials cells need to grow and conduct repairs. This can effectively accelerate natural healing.
- Reduced swelling. As more blood carries beneficial materials into the area, it also carries out excess fluid that can cause swelling.
- Decreased pain. Pain relief occurs as a natural response to the actions taking place against the feet and ankles, but also over time as healing takes place.
Aquaroll may be recommended as a standalone treatment or as part of a comprehensive care plan that includes multiple therapies. Our recommendations will largely depend on the nature of your condition, its severity, and any unique personal or medical needs you might have. Many different conditions and injuries may benefit from Aquaroll therapy, including:
- Heel pain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Achilles tendinitis
- Peripheral neuropathy (nerve pain)
- Sprains and other soft tissue-based sports injuries
It can even benefit patients who have recently undergone a surgical procedure by accelerating their recovery time and reducing their potential risk of infection.
