Aquatic physiotherapy is physiotherapy using warm water for the purposes of aiding rehabilitation. At AquaPhysio, we utilise the properties of the water to formulate a treatment plan for a variety of conditions, many of which can be treated earlier than on land. Our pool allows for versatile treatment programs to suit all stages of rehabilitation.

AquaPhysio are hosting an Aqua Running Open Day on Saturday 16th January 2016. Come along and have a free taster session to find out what athletes around the world are using as part of their fitness and rehab programs. Aqua running is a low impact exercise and is a great way to maintain fitness whilst injured, help weight loss, improve general fitness but also to prevent injury when used as part of weekly exercise. Many of our users have achieved PB's since adding aqua running to their weekly training.
Aqua running, or deep water running, is practiced by those looking to improve fitness or by those seeking to maintain fitness after injury and there is strong evidence to suggest that aqua running is extremely useful in maintaining or improving aerobic fitness.
The popularity of aqua running stems from its ability to reduce repetitive strain and stress from musculoskeletal loading that is normally associated with land-based running. Therefore substituting aquatic exercise for land running is useful to individuals with an injury but also those more at risk or susceptible to an overuse injury.
Part 1 described how studies show that mood enhancement and productivity are benefits of adding aqua running to your running training plan. In Part 2 we discuss other benefits of including your brain and mind in your running training plan.
