Can be

Water or aquatic physical therapy can be very effective, especially when we want to minimize weight bearing but want to maintain resistance. It is also a very effective form of exercise for those who have difficulty with full weight bearing.

How can water physical therapy work?

Less stress on joint

Water
Water or aquatic physical therapy can be helpful with weakness and arthritis. The temperature of the water can help with pain relief. The water also provides a buoyant environment to allow for less strength and stress to move muscles. This can be helpful to allow for weak muscles to move easier in water than on land.

Dr. Clarke Holmes answered:

Physical therapy for groin syndrome?

Deoends

Groin
Technically, there is not one syndrome called "groin syndrome." Groin pain can result from adductor tendonitis, a sports hernia, an inguinal hernia, hip joint problems, osteitis pubis, pubic bone stress fractures & pelvic nerve problems...just to name a few. Physical therapy can be helpful for tendonitis, some hip joint issues & sports hernias, but it's always best to get a definitive diagnosis.
