"The water gives them more freedom of movement to do these (exercises)," said Mike Mericle, director of rehabilitation services at LMH."They (also) don't have the fear of falling, like on land."

Aquatic therapy has several benefits for patients, Mericle added.
Aquatic therapy strengthens muscles while putting much less pressure on joints because water takes away close to 80 or 90 percent of a person's body weight, Mericle said.
"Chad has been lucky to be able to move," Mericle said, sitting at a table on the side of the pool with Sasaki.
Most insurance plans cover the therapy, including Medi-Cal, as long as the patient continues to show improvement, Mericle said.
