Hydrotherapy is essentially physiotherapy in water. Prescribed exercises are given to patients on an individual basis to best meet their needs and physical tolerance. Hydrotherapy is particularly helpful for clients with reduced mobility, issues with weight bearing exercise and balance problems. Most land based exercise can be reproduced with excellent results in the pool. The warm water aids movement and flexibility, relaxes muscle spasm, increases range of motion and offers gentle resistance. Everyone can benefit from hydrotherapy no matter what your physical capacity or fitness level.
Patients with the following conditions and injuries will find hydrotherapy particularly helpful:-
• Joint replacements and reconstructions
• Stroke & neurological disorders
• Multitrauma & brain injuries
• Back & neck pain
• Fractures & sprains
• Balance & mobility problems
• Obesity & diabetes
• Osteo & Rheumatoid Arthritis
Our pool is 10 metres long and 6 metres wide. The depth varies from 1.05 metres in the shallow end to 1.40 metres at the deep end and is accessed by both stairs and a mechanical lifter. We provide the appropriate aquatic exercise equipment and buoyancy aides for our clients use. All patients are assessed before beginning a hydrotherapy program and shown the correct use of the equipment. Click here to learn more about our Hydrotherapy Pool.
