Arthritis Foundation Aquatic Program
The Arthritis Foundation Aquatic Program is a recreational program done in a heated pool. This provides an opportunity for persons with arthritis to meet others who also have arthritis and to have fun. Program participants are led by trained personnel through a series of specially designed exercises which, with the aid of the water’s buoyancy and resistances, can help improve joint flexibility. The warm water and gentle movements can also help to relieve pain and stiffness. Currently, these classes are not being offered. If you are interested in this class format call Austin Wood at 336-786-8313.
Any adult with any type of arthritis, fibromyalgia included, may join the class. It is not necessary to know how to swim. Persons with severe joint problems or who have had joint surgery are encouraged to check with their doctors about the need for special precautions.
To register, you must have a participant release form. You may come by Reeves to get this for or have it mailed to you. This form must be completed and returned before participation is allowed.
