Aquatic Therapy Benefits

One benefit of using Aquatic therapy, or pool therapy, is the buoyancy of the water which assists in supporting the weight of the patient. This reduces the stress on the joints and allows patients with arthritis or broken bones to do physical activity in a safe environment.
