Exercise Water Yoga

Water Aerobics

Exercising in the water is great for osteoarthritis because it allows for resistance training while reducing the overall stress on the joint.  Studies have shown large reductions in inflammation and knee pain, along with improved joint mobility as a result of aquatic activities.

By using varied water depths you can limit the effects of joint pressure by reducing contact with the pool floor. Floatation devices may be used to stabilize your midsection while allowing extremity movement. By including water aerobics in your exercise plan you can ease knee pain and allow your joints to decompress while getting a great workout.
