    Warm water can be a welcoming environment for people with arthritis or other chronic pain. Staying active can provide stress relief and help prevent conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. But pain and mobility limitations can make exercise difficult. Water exercise classes bring physical activity back in reach for many such people so St. Thomas More hospital created a program called Open Exercise Water Wellness.

    It’s designed for people who have limitations that keep them from participating in instructor-led classes. These sessions are led by a physical therapy assistant who has the medical education to teach more rehab-based exercises to help people with conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, or fibromyalgia.

    If the participant is a former patient, there is no age requirement. A Physical Therapy Assistant supervises the class on Tues. and Thurs., 2-2:45pm, and Sat., 8-8:45am.

    Membership: Free for one month with a physician referral; then $30/month for singles, and $50/month for couples.
