First let me say that water therapy is THE BEST!!!!! It alleviates all the hassles of gravity and gives you a freedom that is undescribable!!

As far as getting into the water, there is a ramp. They transfer you from your wheelchair to a ‘showerchair’. Then they roll you down the ramp until you become buyoant enough to float off the chair. Getting out of the pool is just the opposite.

If I were you, I would do anything I could to get the pool therapy. It was the first therapy I ever did and I am better for it. I could walk in water before I could walk on land!
