  • The warmth of the water helps reduce pain by relaxing tight or spastic muscles and increases blood flow.
If you receive land-based therapy or exercises:
  • Water-based therapy provides a change in routine and introduction of new program that complements land-based therapy.
If you want improved well-being, therapeutic exercises:
  • Helps manage stress and anxiety
  • Reduces depression
  • Increases ability to concentrate
  • Develops self-esteem

There are certainly many benefits to group therapeutic exercises, including: affordability, camaraderie, a sense of competition that makes you work harder, etc. but if you have conditions that prevent you from keeping up with the group, there are a lot of benefits in having your own therapeutic exercise program:

  • The therapeutic exercise program is customized according to your own abilities, your needs and goals, taking into consideration input from your other health providers.
  • Private 1:1 means you get personalized attention. The instructor is focused on your own needs.
  • You can provide immediate feedback and the instructor can make the necessary adjustments on the fly.
  • You won’t have to try and keep up with the group.
