Why is hydrotherapy so good?

Immersion in water helps to unload the body, making it easier to perform exercise that you may otherwise find difficult to perform on land.  The heated water (usually set at 32 °C) can also help ease muscle tension.

Hydrotherapy can help to reduce pain and swelling, and to increase joint range of movement, function and strength.

Who can benefit from hydrotherapy?

Anyone can benefit from hydrotherapy.  It is perfect for those needing rehabilitation for: 

  • Surgery - hip, knee, foot, shoulder, joint replacements 

  • Injury - tendon, ligament or muscle tears 

  • Chronic pain

  • De-conditioning

  • Parkinson's Disease
