Aquatic Therapy is different from aquatic exercise in a few distinct ways. Aquatic Therapy focuses on rehabilitative techniques and making sure your body heals properly (from either injury, illness or surgery) Aquatic exercise, on the other hand, is performed while in good health, and focuses on endurance, strength, weight loss and recreation.
Both aquatic exercise and aquatic therapy serve different functions so be sure that you are using the right one to suit your personal needs (they are not interchangeable). You should also consult a doctor before using either of these programs—water resistance is not for everyone.
