  • Aquatic exercise reduces pain and increases flexibility.
  • Water supports and massages the body as you exercise.
  • All of the benefits of land exercise without the sweat.
  • Reduced blood pressure, stress and risk of injury.
  • Often recommended following surgery to minimize postoperative swelling.
