Hydrotherapy is proven to be a safe and effective treatment in accelerating the rate of recovery.
Our hydrotherapy pools in London offer an incredibly therapeutic solution to those suffering with a physical impairment. The support and resistance of the water can ultimately enhance exercises and create a safe environment for rehabilitation. Our hydrotherapy pools are heated to a very comfortable 36°C and also contain an automated hoist to aid entry and exit.
The Advantages of Hydrotherapy
Gravity is reduced by one seventh when a patient is immersed into the water, and it can facilitate exercise techniques that offer both resistance and support. The warm temperature also prompts muscle relaxation, facilitates stretching and generally helps to reduce pain.
Conditions Which Would Benefit From Hydrotherapy Include
- Hip, knee and shoulder pain
- Post surgery
- Hip, knee shoulder replacements
