Hydrotherapy is claimed to be beneficial for rheumatoid arthritis patients no matter how many joints are affected: it helps you relax your muscles and ease the pain.
Hydrotherapy includes doing special exercises in a warm-water pool, with the help of special equipment. A physical therapist is there to help you do the exercises correctly.
Have you already been prescribed this type of treatment for your RA? Share your experience with those who are not familiar with hydrotherapy and would like to know more.
I go to a hydro pool 3 times a week, and do exercises in the warm water, it is the only place I can exercise, the warm water really helps with movement and I feel I have accomplished some exercise without damaging my joints.
