What is hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy is a form of physiotherapy treatment. Hydrotherapy, aquatic physiotherapy, is the use of water to relieve discomfort and promote physical well-being.

What is physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. It can also help to reduce your risk of injury or illness in the future.

Get To Know Us

London Hydrotherapy is a private hydrotherapy service operated by chartered physiotherapists registered with CSP and HCPC.   They are also members of the ATACP. 

Conditions Treated

Hydrotherapy can help in treating musculoskeletal and sports injuries, balance problems, arthritic and inflammatory conditions, pre/post natal, and for Post operative rehabilitation

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 32-35ºC, 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.
