What is hydrotherapy?
Hydrotherapy, is the use of exercise as a therapy within a specially designed heated pool to target which can help treat a wide spectrum of conditions. These include general joint pain, low back pain, orthopaedic conditions, neurological conditions including Muscular Dystrophy, Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, pain related to arthritis, osteoarthritis, sports injuries such as frozen shoulder, ankle sprains and groin strains, fibromyalgia, treatment post elective orthopaedic surgeries such as hip and knee replacements and many more. The use of gentle, controlled movements within the warm water heated gives the opportunity to steadily progress in one’s treatment regime within a safe, comfortable and enjoyable environment.
General Benefits of using a Hydrotherapy pool
The warmth of the water allows your muscles to relax and eases the pain in your joints, helping you to exercise.
The water supports your weight providing minimal impact on joints, the water can be used to provide resistance to moving your joints.
Water gives a feeling of weightlessness whilst exercising in the pool. This enables the person in the pool to carry out exercises which are usually very difficult to carry out on land given that the body feels much lighter in water. This is also extremely useful when normal walking or weight-bearing is restricted or painful especially following various forms of orthopaedic procedures or acute injuries.
