There are many different forms of physical therapy but I like aquatic therapy the best. I have a bad back and I probably need surgery. But until then or maybe never (hopefully) I prefer to ease the pain with aquatic therapy. My doctor and insurance approved aquatic therapy so I went to a pool every week and was guided by a physical therapist. The water is warm and relaxing. One of the things I like most is that it is not a weight-bearing exercise so it doesn’t put pressure on my joints.
I have since joined a group and we swim and exercise together. It’s not only a fun social activity but it really helps me with my pain. I would recommend it to anyone. If you can find a saltwater pool that is really nice too.
