In brief: Yes

Aqua therapy can be very effective in treating back pain/injuries.
As you understand, our spinal column is our primary weight bearing structure, so when it becomes diseased, its weight bearing ability diminishes and prior demands now become uncomfortable. Aqua therapy takes upon itself the gravity factor and relieves your back that way.
