Hydrotherapy:Solution for Avascular Necrosis

Avascular Necrosis:


Osteonecrosis is most common in the hip, but is also seen in the homersknee, and talus and is more rarely seen in the smaller bones of the wrist such as the lunate or scaphoid.


There are some common symptoms associated with avascular necrosis:
  • Joint Pain: Persistent pain in the affected joint is one of the primary symptoms. Initially, the pain may be mild and occur only during weight-bearing activities. However, as the condition progresses, the pain may become more severe and occur even at rest.
  • Limited Range of Motion: Avascular necrosis can lead to reduced flexibility and restricted movement in the affected joint. You may experience stiffness or difficulty moving the joint through its full range of motion.
  • Joint Swelling: Inflammation and swelling around the affected joint can occur, causing localized tenderness and discomfort.
  • Joint Instability: As avascular necrosis progresses, the affected joint may become unstable, making it difficult to bear weight or perform regular activities without discomfort.

Treatment of Avascular Necrosis:

Hydrotherapy is the best Solution for the Avascular Necrosis

Aqua Therapy:

Aqua therapy, also known as aquatic therapy or hydrotherapy, is a form of physical therapy that takes place in a pool or other aquatic environment. It involves using the properties of water to facilitate rehabilitation and improve the overall well-being of individuals with various physical conditions. Aqua therapy is conducted by trained professionals, such as physical therapists or aquatic therapists, who design specific exercise programs tailored to the individual’s needs.

Benefits of Aqua Therapy:

  • Low-impact exercise: Aqua therapy provides a low-impact environment for exercising and moving the affected joints and bones. The buoyancy of water reduces the impact on weight-bearing joints, making it easier for individuals with AVN to engage in movement without exacerbating pain or further damaging the affected bones.
  • Reduced pressure on affected joints: Immersion in water can help reduce the pressure on joints and bones, which can be especially beneficial for individuals with AVN who may experience pain and discomfort during weight-bearing activities.
  • Increased circulation: The hydrostatic pressure exerted by water can improve blood flow and circulation in the affected areas, potentially aiding in the healing process.
  • Pain relief: The warm water used in aqua therapy can have a soothing effect on sore and painful joints, providing temporary pain relief during and after the therapy sessions.


(AVN) is a condition characterized by the death of bone tissue due to a disrupted blood supply? It commonly affects joints such as the hip, knee, shoulder, and ankle.
