The benefits of Hydrotherapy

Admin, 29/06/2016

Hydrotherapy is often used alongside other rehabilitation programs for those who suffer from a disability, have suffered an injury or suffer from chronic pain.

Generally administered by a physiotherapist in a heated pool, hydrotherapy offers a wide range of health benefits.  The buoyancy of the water reduces the need for a patient to bear their weight, helping with muscle spasms, reducing pain and increasing circulation.

Patients who ordinarily could not do simple exercises as walking on the ground, have the opportunity to exercise with the assisted buoyancy of the warm water.
