What Is Hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy refers to the use of water to assist in the treatment of different conditions such as arthritis. Hydrotherapy differs from swimming because it involves individually tailored exercises that are all completed in warm water. The aim of these exercises is to decrease pain, increase range of movement and flexibility, as well as developing muscle strength and general fitness. Hydrotherapy is often a nice alternative or adjunct to a land based exercise program.

Why Does Hydrotherapy Work?

Hydrotherapy works with the following principles to assist your recovery:

  • The pool is heated between 32-35 degrees which aids in muscle and joint relaxation.
  • The buoyancy of the water assists in reducing gravity and thus load through your joints which in turn makes similar land exercises much more comfortable.
  • Equipment such as noodles, kick boards and paddles can all be used to assist exercise progression by increasing resistance through the water.

Who Can Benefit From Hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy benefits clients with a variety of presentations including:

  • Back, hip, knee and shoulder pain including stiffness.
  • Poor balance and coordination.
  • Reduced mobility.
  • Post-operative rehabilitation.
  • Muscle tension

Hydrotherapy can also assist with general relaxation and increase a person’s sense of wellbeing.
