This can be especially helpful after surgery, when your body is healing.

Exercising should be done 3-4 times per week for a total of 30 minutes. Chiropractic recommended hydrotherapy increases endurance, balance and flexibility, muscle tone, high energy, stamina, range of motion, and circulation. You can do this without sweating or risk of injury, and burn up to 460 calories per hour.

  • Water level must be up to neck.
  • Walk back and forth, wall to wall for 20 minutes.
  • Each leg- 5 minutes each with back and forth circulation motion.
