I am assuming your physiologist is trying to rebuild the strength and mobility of your knee, without putting too much pressure on it at this stage. So their focus is not going to be calorie burning.
So it is likely that it is a pretty moderate exercise. I would go with the lower estimate.
Fitness Minutes: (756)

I have just started a 6-session series of 30 minute sessions of underwater treadmill exercise supervised one-on-one with a sports physiologist. As I am beginning an exercise and fitness program with RA, a blown-out right knee and several neck and spine problems this has been highly recommended to me as a good way to start out while slowly adding other strength and cardio exercises. My first session was Tuesday, July 2nd and my 2nd session is Saturday, July 6th. How should I record this activity? 30 minutes of water aerobics (seems a bit low) or 30 minutes of water jogging (seems a bit high)? Please help and thanks! Happy July 4th!
