How does Hydrotherapy help?

Hydrotherapy -aquatic therapy can help you in a number of different ways:

The water supports your weight, which helps to relieve pain and increase the range of movement of your joints.
The warmth of the water allows your muscles to relax and eases the pain in your joints, helping you to exercise.
The water can be used to provide resistance to moving your joints. By pushing your arms and legs against the water, you can also improve your muscle strength.
