Exercise in the pool greatly benefits conditions such as arthritis and muscle pain. It can also be used for rehabilitation after operations such as hip or knee replacements and for musculoskeletal disorders generally.
The water temperature in the pool is maintained between 34-36ºC, which is much warmer than a normal swimming pool. This helps your muscles to relax and the water supports your weight, which makes it easier to exercise and move.
Hydrotherapy can be used in combination with normal land based physiotherapy sessions to add variety and speed up rehabilitation.
One to two physiotherapists will be with you in the pool and you can have assistance if needed to get changed. Our physiotherapists are specialised in hydrotherapy so you can be assured of receiving the best possible treatment.
Your condition will be assessed and a personalised exercise programme will be designed to meet your needs. You do not have to be able to swim to have hydrotherapy as the pool is quite shallow so you can exercise well within your comfortable depth.
