The Arthritis Foundation partners with the Greene County YMCA to bring the benefits of water exercise to people with arthritis. This program is free to those who participant release forms signed. Membership is not a requirement.
The Arthritis Foundation YMCA Aquatic Program is offered three times on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and once on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. The warmth, buoyancy and resistance created by the water can help maintain, and even improve joint flexibility. Pain and stiffness can be lessened as well.
- Require no more than minimal assistance to enter or exit the pool.
- Feel comfortable and confident in the water.
- Wear appropriate bathing suit.
