Pool Therapy for Back Problems ( Aqua Therapy )

If you have back troubles and can get your insurance company to cover you , try Aqua Therapy , It saved me from surgery for a few years . If your insurance company won't cover you , at least try it , even out of your own pocket , with the excercises they give you , you'd be able to join a club that has a pool and you can do the Aqua therapy yourself . Its not just swimming , but a regimine of small steps to do . I am in central New Jersey if anyone needs the name of my rehab center . It's in Middletown .

Stay safe *** be well ***

I'd really like to hear more about this. Can you just ******** exercises and do it yourself or should you find a centre for some sessions first? Thanks in advance

Re: Pool Therapy for Back Problems ( Aqua Therapy )

Would suggest going to a therapist first so they can correct you if you are turning your hips incorrectly or trying to extend too far (both of which i get yelled at for ). I've found many of the exercises are the same as you would do for land therapy, but with the benefit of having the water to support your body and the water resistance. Generally, I start with walking into stretching/strengthening exercises. Where I go is a fitness center/pt rehab campus from a local hospital. We use foam weights, foam noodles, and some other devices to add resistance while doing various things.

My mom has a pool, but that doesn't help living in Ohio with winter incomming. I'm hoping the Veterans Administration continues to pay for this therapy for me, but who knows.

Good luck on getting back to a pain-free life or some semblance!!!
