    Rehabilitation oriented fitness programs that feature gentle exercises in warm water that are especially designed to relieve pain, stiffness and general discomfort in individuals who have disabling conditions such as arthritis, spinal cord injuries, head injuries, amputations, Guillain-Barre syndrome, chronic pain or orthopedic injuries. Exercise in water can increase circulation, strength and endurance, protect joints during exercise, reduce stress and decrease swelling; and the buoyancy effect of water helps to support the individual's weight and improve the movement of affected limbs. Aquatic therapy is generally provided by licensed physical therapists, physical therapy assistants or athletic trainers with specific training in the area.
