What is Hydrotherapy

  • Print

Hydrotherapy is the use of water based exercises in a warm pool heated up to 36 degrees Celsius.  The waters ability to create an almost weightless effect on your body makes it an effective tool in the treatment of muscle, joint, general body weakness, pain and disability.

Water supports your body making you feel weightless while applying uniform resistance during exercise and therefore is very effective in moving an injured body part after surgery or injury.

Under the direct supervision of our therapist you will be taken through an exercise regime to help you recover in a safe and more comfortable manner. You may use aids such as flotation devices to facilitate your rehabilitation.

Hydrotherapy can help with:

  • Arthritis
  • Fitness and Conditioning
  • Spinal Pain
  • Joint Pain
  • Post surgery
  • Reduced weight bearing situations
  • Chronic Pain Management
  • Recovery after Sports Exercise
  • Relaxation of Muscles and Joints in the warm water.
