Hydrotherapy is a specialist physiotherapy treatment based in water that is above the temperature of normal swimming pools. Hydrotherapy is used to treat a number of different conditions and injuries and can have fantastic outcomes.
Our pool has wheelchair access, a tracking hoist and fully equipped changing facilities. The physiotherapists at Manchester Physio will use a range of aids and adaptations to design a tailored treatment programme to suit your needs.
Hydrotherapy can have the following benefits:
- Reduce joint stiffness
- Muscle strengthening
- Alleviate pain
- Relaxes muscle groups
- Improve cardiovascular fitness
- Improve mobility levels
- Increase balance and coordination
Due to the buoyancy properties and temperature of the water, hydrotherapy allows you to make substantial improvements during treatment sessions. Your physiotherapist may combine hydrotherapy with land based treatments to maximise your potential. Conditions that may be treated with hydrotherapy include:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Back pain
- Muscle sprains
- Post surgery
- Balance problems
- Neurological conditions
Hydrotherapy is an extremely beneficial physiotherapy treatment for a wide range of conditions and injuries. Your physiotherapist will decide the best rehabilitation programme to help you return to your normal activities of daily living as soon as possible.
