Aquatic Therapy or “Aquatherapy” is a therapist-supervised treatment of a wide range of conditions in a heated pool (34 -36˚C). Aquatic Therapy utilises the warmth of the water to relax muscles, the buoyancy to assist or resist movement and the weightlessness to decrease pain and stress on joints. Aquatic exercise in warm water improves the pumping action of the heart,
makes the lungs work harder, reduces pain and unloads the joints. It is suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels and as our pools are at a safe depth you do not need to be able to swim to benefit from Aquatic therapy.
Who can benefit from Aquatic Therapy?
Why Aquatic Therapy?
Water reduces the effects of gravity on the body and together with buoyancy, hydrostatic pressure and the warmth of the water it allows many people to exercise who would be unable to do so on land. Our physiotherapists offer individual and group aquatic therapy sessions. We also offer regular back rehabilitation and antenatal classes. Contact us for the current schedule.
