The Advantages of Using Hydrotherapy
Specific Heat - Our pool is maintained at 34°C, which can help to warm the tissues to improve circulation and allow for a wide range of exercises to be performed
Buoyancy - Can help increase range of movement and decrease pain
Resistance - Strengthen specific muscles without joint impact sooner than possible on land with our state-of-the-art underwater current machine
Hydrostatic Pressure - (Natural pressurising qualities that can help reduce swelling, blood flow and lymphatic drainage).
Sensory Input - Water can increase your proprioception and improve your balance and confidence. Our specially heated water can also have a pain reducing effect!
When and How Can I Start Hydrotherapy?
Because of the buoyancy effects of hydrotherapy pools and the resulting lack of impact to the affected joint, hydrotherapy can be a fantastic initial step post-injury. The earlier you start the better off you will be!
Getting started is simple and easy, and it involves an initial assessment from one of our highly qualified physiotherapists. From there they will build a programme tailored to your needs. Sessions progress from one-on-one sessions with your physio to self-managed sessions with a bespoke rehabilitation plan, meaning you’re supported at every stage.
