Video Shorts: Aqua Therapy for Muscular Dystrophy

Aqua Therapy with Aquaman and Friends

As is the case with many folks with compromised mobility, the pool is a happy, healing place for me. Below you will find a series of video YouTube shorts highlighting key exercises that my husband (a.k.a. Aquaman) and I do in our neighborhood pool three or four times a week.

Aqua therapy offers innumerable benefits for those of us with muscular dystrophy, in my case facioscapulohumeral dystrophy (FSHD). Pool work tones muscles, deepens breathing, and improves vocalization. Thanks to water buoyancy, I enjoy an improved range of motion, a welcomed degree of greater independence, and all the fun that comes with sharing time in the sun with friends.

Splish, splash!
