Just curious.....Does any think that while water aerobics can be goofy--maybe more of a geriatric exercise--it is a useful tool for injury prevention and recovery?
kneedraggen saidI had to give some thought to your question. The water aerobics classes I have seen are for people with multiple sclerosis and deforming rheumatoid arthritis. I know that some physical therapists in my area give hydro therapy to people with certain injuries. Logically it must be good for injury prevention and rehabilitation then. I found this article about water aerobics.
The activity doesn't have to be for wimps. There are all levels of intensity.
