The buoyancy of water provides physical support and removes pressure off of weak joints while patients move easily through positions and exercises that may be difficult or impossible to perform on land. Water resistance can turn simple movements into muscle working, providing a more effective workout without additional strain. Water pressure reduces swelling; it minimizes the damage from inflammation, sprains, and other injuries.
