Aqua therapy and rehabilitation (rehab) research shows benefits for many populations. If you have water available to you in the form of a pool, spa or open water (lake, river, ocean), you can rehab yourself and others.
Rehabilitation in water can take place in a warm or cool pool. Therapy and rehab have documented results in pools (or water) from 80 to 98 degrees.
Research regarding exercise in the pool is extensive. The teaching and education for aquatic therapy and rehabilitation happens in schools, conferences and online. The most extensive aquatic therapy education is offered by the Aquatic Therapy & Rehab Institutes.
