Hydrotherapy is the use of water in the treatment of different conditions - it differs from swimming because it involves special exercises carried out in a warm-water pool. The water temperature is usually 32°C–34°C, which is warmer than a typical swimming pool; this helps to increase circulation, reduce muscle spasm and relieve pain.
Usually a physiotherapist with specialist training will demonstrate and supervise the exercises. The focus of the exercises can be adjusted to help the patient’s range of movement or strength, depending on their symptoms or condition.
My sister attends the centre for hydrotherapy & without it she would not have achieved as much as she has. I can't thank you enough for the treatment she receives. The facilities are always clean and the staff are always friendly.
