Sterling Physical Therapy and Aquatics out of Simi Valley, CA created this comprehensive, and very slick video,  that really illustrates the value of aquatic therapy using a counter current pool.

From their site:

Our indoor and on location Swim Ex pool is an exclusive to Sterling Physical Therapy. Our patients receive land based and aquatic physical therapy at the same location. We are the only physical therapy program in Simi Valley to offer this to our patients.   In the video above our physical therapy staff  will explain the advantages of employing pool therapy for patient rehabilitation. The power of water can be used by many to get the most from a therapy program. Patients with back aches who have difficulty performing exercises on land can benefit from aquatic therapy as the pool helps to decrease the load of gravity on the spine, allowing the patient to develop and strengthen muscles that can help ease back pain.
