Pool Therapy

Friday, January 25, 2013

In the last few months I have been having pool therapy for arthritis in my knees. Well, that ended, because my insurance won't pay anymore. So my Ortho Dr suggested a maintenance program for me. For a monthly fee (that I pay out of my pocket), I can come to the pool or use the exercise equipment there as much as I want each month.

Today was my first maintenance (therapy session) in their pool. I gave myself a good workout. I did remember to take a pain pill an hour before I went. I think the pain pill did help. I was hurting some, but not as much as I could have been.

I am going to try to go as often as I can. I want to try to keep a regular schedule. The pool is relaxing as well as helpful.

Blessings to all.

    Pool therapy is great, but it is sad that insurance companies won't pay for it anymore. My guess is The Government has something to to do with that. My insurance won't pay for dental care anymore either. I just had some teeth pulled (Out of my pocket expense). Good luck with your therapy.

    I have the same kind of knee...I've been taking a water aerobics class. It probably doesn't help as much as the therapy, but I find I'm having less pain (and the knee is getting stronger and better able to hold me up).

    You are on target. That is great way to exercise.
