Aquatic or pool therapy exercises are performed in the water. They are useful for lots of medical conditions because the properties of the water such as the buoyancy which supports your weight, are very helpful. Water reduces the forces that are put on your joints, and this therapy if particularly good if you have arthritis, broken bones, or are overweight.
A great source of resistance comes from the viscosity of water, as it allows you to strengthen muscles without the need for weights.
The warm water temperature also helps in relaxing your muscles and widening your blood vessels, which increases blood flow to injured areas.
