Therapy techniques in the water
Hydrotherapy is the application of physiotherapy techniques in a heated pool, utilising the properties of water to rehabilitate and treat a variety of conditions and injuries.
By having treatment in a hydrotherapy pool patients are able to continue exercising even if they still have injuries, pain or reduced mobility that might limit them from exercising on land.
