Why is exercising in water better? Three factors play a role: water buoyancy, resistance, and cooling effects. Together, these make exercising in water easier to accomplish, much more beneficial, and less likely to result in stress or injury.
• Water buoyancy eliminates the normal pounding and jarring associated with aerobic movements.
• Water resistance—which is 12–14 times greater than on dry land—makes your workout more effective.
• Water also continuously cools the body, so there’s less chance of overheating.

Medical research shows that water’s stress-free and supportive environment can also help heal, recover, and rehabilitate. Doctors often recommend hydrotherapy for managing health conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, diabetes, heart disease, and conditions associated with osteoarthritis. Water-based exercise can also help with chronic pain, recovery and rehabilitation, improving mental health, and keeping older adults active and engaged.
Always discuss your physical condition and medical history with your doctor or physical therapist before engaging in hydrotherapy.
