Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy involves exercise and physiotherapy in a swimming pool. Hydrotherapy is extremely effective in aiding pain relief and rehabilitation, and promoting general fitness and a sense of well-being. The benefits of water therapy are well documented. Research has shown that hydrotherapy is extremely effective in aiding pain relief and rehabilitation, as well as promoting general fitness and well-being.

Hydrotherapy is also a particularly effective form of rehabilitation, as the therapeutic effects of buoyancy and turbulence, combined with warm water, help reduce pain and muscle spasm. In other words, hydrotherapy is a particularly effective form of both exercise and rehabilitation, because it helps to keep muscles toned which maximises balance and mobility.

One of the greatest benefits of hydrotherapy is its potential to reduce falls, as it helps to keep muscles strong which maximises balance and mobility. This gentle form of exercise is recognised as one of the most beneficial physiotherapy techniques in the treatment of:

  • Post-op orthopaedic conditions
  • Osteoporosis
  • Neurological conditions
  • Arthritis
  • Cardiac rehabilitation
  • Musculoskeletal and soft tissue injury
  • Acute and chronic back pain
  • Ante and post natal care
  • And range of work-related injuries

Each hydrotherapy program is individually tailored to meet the needs of the patient. Sessions are conducted by physiotherapists who specialise in hydrotherapy.

Regular hydrotherapy can help you maintain quality of life. With the aid of hydrotherapy, you will experience a greater level of well-being and fitness which promotes an active lifestyle.
