Hydrotherapy (Aquatic Physiotherapy)

What is Hydrotherapy?

 

Hydrotherapy, now also known as Aquatic Physiotherapy, is one of the world’s oldest forms of healing.  Today’s hydrotherapy approach uses modern physiotherapy techniques combined with physics and exercise physiology to provide a safe, scientifically based treatment for conditions such as; back pain, arthritis, stroke and rehabilitation following orthopaedic surgery.

Hydrotherapy is great for the treatment of sports injuries and is equally as effective in the elderly to promote movement, balance and fitness.

How does hydrotherapy work?

The pool water is heated to a warm 35° which stimulates blood flow, soothes aching joints and relaxes tight muscle groups. Exercising in water is effective because the buoyancy of the water supports the body’s weight, thus allowing exercise to be carried out with minimal pressure on the joints.  The water virtually eliminates impact allowing users to perform some exercises that they cannot perform on land, whilst providing resistance to strengthen muscles.

Our experienced team will devise a tailor made program to suit your changing needs and supervise your progression.
