Hydrotherapy is a water based therapy designed to reduce pain and improve movement strength and balance. The Inform Hydrotherapy Program incorporates individual assessment, hands-on pool based physiotherapy treatment techniques and injury-specific exercises.
A variety of people can benefit from hydrotherapy especially those with chronic pain, osteoarthritis or after knee or hip surgery. The warm water provides a pleasant environment to perform gentle exercises that can assist in reducing back and neck pain. If you are suffering from osteoarthritis, the water exercises help to offload painful joints and strengthen your muscles. Hydrotherapy is also a safe way to rebuild strength and range of motion after knee or hip surgery.
About the Hydrotherapy Program:
- The program runs for 6 weeks and consists of 2 sessions per week at Menai Swim Academy taught by our experienced Physiotherapist.
