Hydrotherapy is an extension of Physiotherapy.
It is exercise and movement in water under the guidance of a Physiotherapist
with specialised skills.
The water is kept at 34°C / 94°F allowing you to stay in the
water without feeling cold.
The warmth also allows ease of movement to joints without stressing
them and allowing strengthening of muscles at the same time.
The movements in water are pain free and normal functional activities
can be achieved.
Treatment is suitable for swimmers and none swimmers alike. All movements
in the water are performed with Annette and / or Becky in the pool
giving direct supervision.
Hydrotherapy can play a vital role in rehabilitation by treating the
body as a whole.
Hydrotherapy is a recognised treatment shown to
Improve balance and coordination
Help with relaxation
Aid improvement of core and postural stability
Re-educate normal function
Improve quality of life
We use a variety of pieces of specialist equipment to enhance the
naturally occurring properties of water.
