Training in water at waist height reduced body weight by 50% which took the load off Simon’s back during exercise.
The water promoted pain free movement, enabling Simon to exercise in comfort.
Effective exercise will reduce Simon’s weight and improve core strength, which will make a positive contribution to managing his condition.
The feel-good factor is an important aspect of these programmes and users report a reduction in stress levels and a feeling of wellbeing both during and after training.
