I have done pool therapy twice now and it left me drained. The first time I got 3 months before the insurance company said no more, the second time I got 6 sessions and the therapist made me move to land based therapy. I loved how the water felt on my pain levels, I wish I could use a pool heated that warm on a daily basis just to help with the pain. I think insurance companies should pay to install hot tubs in our homes to help with the pain. Seriously it would be so nice if I could just soak away the pain. I can't handle a regular pool because of how my joints and muscles freeze up when exposed to cold.
