Individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI) or other special populations may be unable to exercise on land, but often can do so comfortably in the water. The buoyancy of water causes the individual to feel an upward thrust when submerged. This force acts in the opposite direction of gravity.

Hydrostatic pressure decreases pain and edema, which in turn increases range of motion.
