Why pool therapy?

Benefits of water therapy can be credited to its physical properties which cannot be reproduced elsewhere. Buoyancy: reverses the effects of gravity thereby reducing the pain associated with joint stress and weight bearing. Hydrostatic Pressure: decreases swelling and increases circulation. Viscosity: provides resistance with movement when the body is submerged into water. The viscosity of water is 12 times greater than air.
