Water therapy…

I have been going swimming at our local YMCA for a year & a half now. I do water aerobics twice a week, in an MS supported class. At first I used the hydraulic chair to get in & out, now I just wear my braces with water shoes & can walk in & out using the railing & stairs. It has been a godsend to me, strengthening what I do have left, as well as giving me range of motion throughout my joints. Our pool is kept at about 83 degrees, which is good for me, as I tend to get overheated very easily with my CIDP.

This is great info! Thanks
I read these posts to Nate just now. He was playing with the dogs in my room.
He says he will try to get them to let him have water therapy.
He has atrophied muscles in his legs also. They don’t even show at all.
He has always been a water bug since he was little and not getting to swim 2 summers in a row has him really missing it.
I’ll let everyone know how it goes tomorrow.
