CE Credit Hours: 2.00 Continuing Education Credit Hours
CEU Course Description
Exercise has been shown to be effective in decreasing pain, and improving function and performance of activities of daily living in people with arthritis. While hydrotherapy is often suggested as an exercise intervention, there is little evidence that it is more effective than other forms of exercise. This CE course identifies the patient reported outcome measures used for assessing the effectiveness of hydrotherapy for people with arthritis.
