These exercises are designed to gently stretch and mobilise your lower back. They are particularly useful to do if you suffering from an acute episode of back pain and are unable to easily move on dry land. Please note that they should all be carried out within your comfortable limits.
The hydrotherapy pool is the perfect environment for people with painful joints, including arthritis, back pain or following orthopaedic or spinal surgery. The warm water relaxes the muscles, reducing pain and therefore making it more comfortable to exercise. The buoyancy of the water supports your body weight, reducing the pressure through your spine and joints.
Increasing the movement in your back will reduce stiffness and increase confidence in spinal movement. By easing the pain in your joints and making exercise easier, hydrotherapy can help your recovery be faster than other rehabilitation methods.
Each programme of exercise is made specifically to your individual needs and will be arranged and progressed by your physiotherapist.
