Aquatic therapy consists of an exercise program that is performed in the water under the supervision of a medical professional. It is an effective form of therapy that is useful for a variety of medical conditions. Aquatic Therapy uses the buoyancy properties of water to assist in patient healing and exercise performance. Being submerged in water assists in supporting the weight of the patient through exercise and range of motion. This decreases the amount of weight bearing which reduces the force of stress placed on the joints.
