Water is a great healer and the ideal medium for rehabilitation, conditioning, training. The hydrostatic (passive) and hydrodynamic (active) properties of water provide an optimal environment for safe and effective therapy and conditioning. With little or no weight bearing in the water, the injured or deconditioned client is able to return to desired activities quickly and safely.
