Today we meet nineyearold Jay, who suffers from arthritis when he walks about but not when he's in the pool! Physiotherapist Amy Robinson runs Jay through hydrotherapy sessions involving exercise and play in the warm water, which relaxes the joints. Xand points out that even though the exercises are a lot of hard work, the water makes it a lot softer on the joints and the water resistance makes you work hard and gives full value to the exercises.
