Hydrotherapy, also known as Aquatic Physiotherapy, refers to physiotherapy carried out in a heated pool. Hydrotherapy helps regain or enhance physical well being in a warm relaxing environment. A series of gentle therapeutic exercises carried out in a heated pool allow greater comfort and range of movement as the water helps to support body weight. Therapeutic exercises can be progressed safely using the resistance of the water to strengthen the muscles and improve stability. Hydrotherapy treatment incorporates individual assessment, diagnosis and the use of clinical reasoning skills to formulate an exercise treatment program appropriate to each patient’s needs.
