What is Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is a water based treatment provided by the physiotherapists at Manchester Neuro Physio. You do not need to be able to swim have hydrotherapy treatment. The pool has shallow areas, allowing you to exercise well within your depth. Buoyancy aids and floatation devices are regularly used, and there is always at least one physiotherapist in the pool and one on the side of the pool.

Hydrotherapy is a very pleasant treatment as the warm water relaxes tight muscle groups and eases stiff joints. Treatment programmes vary dependent on your condition but generally utilise the properties of water such as increased buoyancy, resistance and turbulence to help you achieve your goals.

Hydrotherapy treatment usually consists of gentle stretching, floatation and relaxation exercises, strengthening exercises against the resistance of the water and movement exercises within the water.
