What is Aquatic Therapy?
Aquatic Therapy combines the physical properties of water with specific exercises. The water’s buoyancy can allow for a pain-free full-body workout which decreases stress on painful joints. Regular exercise can lead to gradual increases in strength, flexibility, and range of motion which can result in improved function with less pain.

- Decreases the weight-bearing load on joints
