Aquacare Physical Therapy, with locations in Millville, Millsboro, and Lewes, is offering specialty aquatic fitness programs in its warm water therapy pool. Aquacare Physical Therapy locations house large therapy pools that are kept at a comfortable, therapeutic 91 degrees.
The Millsboro location also offers classes. Water Aerobics, a low-impact class, is appropriate for all fitness levels and perfect for those with arthritis. Aquatic Zumba, known as the Zumba pool party, gives an invigorating workout with lots of splashing, stretching and twisting. Classes run during morning hours Monday through Friday.

“In the aquatic environment, people can move in a noncompressive environment with less pain and pressure on arthritic and painful joints," says Erich Traum, DPT, clinical director of the Millsboro Aquacare Physical Therapy location.
