Warm Water exercises with fibro

Jul 20, 2017 12:02 PM

I've been doing PT in warm water. It feels so good to be in the warm water and it was fun doing the exercises. But I hurt so bad afterwards. It built up, each time I went I hurt worse. Now I don't know what exercise to do. I thought warm water would help. Are there any suggestions?

Do you think maybe you might have took it to fast with your PT maybe slow it right down and build it up?

I do think they increased speed and reps fast but medicare only pays for 8 sessions. They didn't have the time to go slow. I didn't think of that causing more pain.

That's a shame you can't get more sessions, I definatly think that could have caused the pain.
