A warm water exercise program has been shown to help reduce pain and improve overall health. It can also help to gain strength and flexibility and improve your day to day life.

Programmes have been made up specifically for this in the US but are not available in the UK. However there are a number of Aqua Fit classes available throughout the UK in County Councils Leisure Centres.

I also found some privately run ones which are for pain but only in London and Hertfordshire.

‘Pain and Able’ swimming lessons in London can be found on their website – they specialise in teaching adults ho need to swim to help manage chronic pain, especially back pain. I just wish this was available in my area as I would definitely go.

Another company ‘Aqua Therapy’ has venues in Hertfordshire and so different types of classes to help with pain.

Another company in Hertfordshire has aquatic therapy, personalised water therapy for health and fitness, and water Shiatsu.

I am sure there must be others available that maybe trading under something else on the internet. If anyone does know of one in their local area then do please leave the details in a comment as I am sure there are a number of us who could benefit from this type of pain treatment.


  1. This sounds amazing! A warm water exercise sounds like it could be absolutely beneficial no matter what condition you had, but especially for back pain. Recent research has shown that exercise can be very helpful for these types of conditions. The problem is that many people don’t know how to exercise properly without hurting their back. Thanks for this information.


  2. Really digging the aqua therapy and the resources that you have provided here. I was at the gym recently, and strained my back during my workout. I have been looking around for various methods of relief (aside from the usual Aleve), and this post really captured my attention. Since I actually have spent some time writing health related posts, I am always on the lookout for good resources like this. Thanks for the post!


  3. Thanks for providing some really great resources here! Always on the look out for alternative methods of alleviating pain, mostly because the traditional methods won’t work for everyone. This aquatic therapy has certainly captured my attention, will spend some more time researching it.
