Aquatic Therapy is a form of rehabilitation in water. It is often used for treatment after an injury or when the body is weak after illness or surgery. Considered safer than many land-based therapies. it comes highly recommended as an addition to the overall treatment approach to rehabilitation. Water exercise improves flexibility, range of motion, and strengthens and tones muscles without hurting vulnerable joints. Water exercise also increases blood flow to muscles, ligaments, and tendons and helps to eliminate substances that build up with inflammation. When you exercise in water, you're working with buoyancy, not gravity. There isn't much compression(stress) with buoyancy, so you can do more for a longer time.
