Hydrotherapy is aquatic physiotherapy where exercises are performed in a heated pool. It uses the principles of resistance and buoyancy to complete different exercises to those which can be achieved on land. Hydrotherapy aims to reduce pain, reduce muscle tension, improve circulation, balance, stability, strength and endurance. Hydrotherapy is most beneficial for:
- Whiplash conditions
- Pre/post operative rehabilitation
- Back and neck pain
- Work-related injuries
- Sports rehabilitation
