Often times people are in too much pain to undergo regular physical therapy, and now Pella Regional Health Center offers a program to fit the needs of that demographic. Physical Therapist Liz Vermeer tells KNIA/KRLS News that she has been assisting individuals in aquatic therapy twice a week at the Country Inn and Suites. Vermeer says that because you are lighter in water, often times it’s much more beneficial for people to do exercises in a pool rather than on land. In addition, Vermeer says that aquatic therapy isn’t for everyone, and it’s important to contact your personal care physician before pursuing it.
