Hydrotherapy, or water therapy, is a buoyancy-assisted weight bearing exercise program aimed at restoring movement to sore joints, improving general mobility, assisting with development of strength, and challenging balance. Hydrotherapy is appropriate for a wide range of orthopaedic, musculoskeletal, and neurological conditions. Many pregnant women enjoy this type of exercise as it alleviates sore joints in the months leading up to preparing for a new baby to arrive. Athletes enjoy the low-impact exercises while training for competition. There are countless reasons to participate in a tailored hydrotherapy program.
