What is Hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy (or aquatic physiotherapy) applies physiotherapy techniques and principles in a heated pool. The focus of the exercises during a hydrotherapy session can be adjusted to help your range of movement or strength, depending on your symptoms.

Hydrotherapy tends to be different to aquarobics, which can be quite strenuous, as it’s generally more focused on slow, controlled movements and relaxation.

Benefits of Hydrotherapy

The buoyancy of water reduces the effects of gravity, allowing for easier movement and exercises with less impact on joints, making it particularly beneficial for individuals with musculoskeletal conditions, those recovering from injuries and joint replacement.

Additionally, hydrotherapy can aid in both surgery and injury rehabilitation, especially after orthopaedic surgeries. The resistance provided by water enhances muscle strength and can assist in restoring balance and coordination.

A hydrotherapy rehabilitation program can also have a positive impact on mental well-being, reducing stress, promoting relaxation, and improving sleep quality.
