Working out in deep water is more challenging than in shallow water because, in deep, the body’s center of balance is at the chest whereas, in shallow water, the balance is at the feet that are more easily anchored down to the pool floor.

Learn how to modify and progress exercises as well as vary impact and intensity to meet the needs of a multi level arthritis class. Add noodles or resistive paddles for improved muscular strength, flexibility and balance. The exercise goal for people with arthritis is to increase range of motion (ROM), muscular strength, flexibility, and balance, and to develop and maintain endurance.  Since arthritis is a joint disease, people with arthritis need to try to move through each joint’s active range of motion on a daily basis.  This regular movement helps prevent stiffness and loss of mobility.  Remember that range of motion is unique to each person and is specific to each joint.  Encourage full ROM, while reminding people to tune into their own body cues.
