Is hydrotherapy right for me?

Hydrotherapy is a low impact form of exercise. It is a safe option for most people with arthritis.

Benefits include:

  • Reduced stress on joints when exercising.
  • Warmth of water (34 degrees) helps muscles relax.
  • Water provides natural resistance for building strength.
  • Safe environment for those worried about or at risk of falls.

Some conditions may prevent you from doing hydrotherapy. For example:

  • Open wounds
  • Infections – such as urinary, skin, eye, and ear
  • Incontinence
  • Dizziness and fainting

Always consult your doctor when deciding to start an exercise program.
