Patients need not know how to swim!
Aquatic therapy consists of a specialized exercise program in water. The program is designed to utilize the physical properties of water. These properties make it much easier for an individual with pain and/or weakness to move because the water provides support to the individual in a pain-reduced manner. A qualified physical therapist can utilize specific techniques and manipulate the properties of the water to help the patient decrease pain and swelling, increase mobility and strength and improve his/her function.
