|An adult male participating in an aquatic exercise program. tried a water-based program of exercise|
In the support and buoyancy of the water, Henry found he was able to begin to move again. After just a few months of working in the water, he found he was regaining control of his body. Soon he was able to stand alone in the pool. As his leg movement increased, he began to float on his back and kick. His arm movements increased as well, and he could bring his hands to his chin. The improvement carried over to his life out of the water. Now, on land he can stand alone using a walker and his speech is steadily improving.
Almost as amazing as the progress Henry Moss has made is where he goes to make this progress. It's not a world famous rehabilitation hospital or clinic. It's a family YMCA in St. Charles County, just outside of St. Louis, Missouri. Henry found the Aqua Abilities Program run by ShowMe Aquatics.
