Warmth relaxes tight muscles in the water.
When using a full support flotation aid like the Sectional Raft, some of the body remains above the waterline. The evaporation from the exposed parts of the body causes the swimmer to get chilly. When they get chilly, spasticity may increase. So, get a towel wet and lay it over the exposed part of the body before a chill sets in. Stop the chill before it starts, helping prevent the spasticity before it begins.
