Hydrotherapy is beneficial for many conditions. The warmth and buoyancy effect of the water alleviates stress on the muscles and joints which helps patients rehabilitate injuries efficiently.

The use of a hydrotherapy pool helps restore balance/strength/range of motion and coordination lost due to injury or accident. The water provides a safe environment, minimizing the risk of re-injury. This helps ease people back into their ability to function normally with activities of daily living and sport.

A hydrotherapy program can be tailored to suit an individual’s specific needs.

Don’t hesitate to call us and consult with a physiotherapist to see how hydrotherapy can help with your condition.
