2. Assist With Specific Health Conditions

Many different health conditions benefit from exercise and therapy in water; arthritis is one common ailment. The water can help ease inflammation of the joints and allow people with arthritis to move while buoyed by the water. Studies show hydrotherapy has many benefits for people with fibromyalgia, including improved mental health and reduced pain and tenderness. Therapists use hydrotherapy to help people recover from stroke and to improve the health and well being of those with Parkinson's disease, whiplash, and more.
