Exercising in the water may be the perfect answer to your fitness needs or goals. With pain-free, low impact movements, exercise in water can help improve your overall health and speed recovery from a recent injury or illness. Water exercise can often help you heal after undergoing surgery.
Water wellness is also a great option if you want to:
- Increase your metabolism
- Build muscle tone and strength
- Improve balance, coordination and range of motion
- Relieve tension
The UAMS Water Wellness Program is offered in two locations: the Jackson T. Stephens Spine & Neurosciences Institute and Donald W. Reynolds Institute on Aging. The program offers a variety of aquatic exercise classes for adults 18 years and older. Free, convenient parking is available at the front door.
The facility in the Spine and Neurosciences Institute includes a whirlpool room next to the pool, a ramp for handicap accessibility and a unique walking track in waist-deep water with handrails.
You may participate in organized classes, design your own fitness program or practice exercises provided by a physical or occupational therapist. You can target specific body areas to exercise or combine several movements for a complete head-to-toe activity.
