Hydrotherapy or aquatic physiotherapy involves therapeutic exercises in a heated pool prescribed by a Physiotherapist with specialised training. The warmth and buoyancy of the water greatly reduces pressure on joints, making it easier for those with pain and stiffness to perform exercises.

What are the benefits of Hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy offers many benefits to a large variety of people. It is very suitable for rehabilitation following injury or surgery, for arthritis sufferers or for general spinal pain and stiffness. Classes and one on one appointments can be made.


What are the therapeutic benefits of Hydrotherapy that our patients are seeing?

  • Muscular relaxation and decreased muscle spasm.

  • Decreased pain due to warmth and support.

  • Gravity is countered by buoyancy.

  • Increased muscle strength and endurance due to the greater resistance in water.

  • Improvement in swelling, due to hydrostatic pressure.

  • Enhanced balance and stabilisation.

  • Improved enjoyment and confidence to move better.
