Does Aquatic Physical Therapy Help Arthritis?

Yes! Aquatic Physical Therapy is an amazing treatment for patients struggling with knee, hip and ankle arthritis! The water helps take the pressure off of your inflamed joints and allows you to exercise and strengthen your muscles without the pain and discomfort you’d normally feel.

Aquatic Therapy is clinically proven effective treatment for arthritis and here’s why:

  1. Water challenges your muscles in different planes of motion and allows you to quickly build strength throughout your legs, thighs and back. 
  2. You can safely push yourself without worrying about falling over or injuring yourself
  3. Reduces compression on your already inflamed joints and allows you to strengthen muscles without irritating your knees and hips
