Water also allows for quicker healing processes and pain free restoration of function to help more people return to activities of daily living, work, and recreation. Aquatic rehabilitation is also an option for clients who are unable to participate in land-based exercise due to recent surgery, acute orthopedic or neuromuscular injury, rheumatologic disease, or neurological impairment.
