Kootenai Health’s aquatic fitness sessions are conducted by certified aquatic instructors. The natural buoyancy and hydrostatic pressure in the water create a sensory-rich environment. The warm water is soothing and helps to relax muscles as well as promotes healing. A doctor’s referral is required for skilled therapy.
Aquatic therapy is an excellent choice for:
- Improving balance

- Strengthening muscles
- Increasing joint range of motion
- Increasing endurance
- Alleviating or reducing pain
