Hydrotherapy Pool & Water Therapy
Hydrotherapy is physiotherapy that takes place in our state of the art 34°C warm water pool. The warm temperature of the water allows your muscles to relax and eases pain and stiffness, making it easier to exercise. Hydrotherapy can ease painful joints, increase range of movement in your joints and improve your muscle strength.
At KW Physio we use a Swimex 1000-T hydrotherapy pool that contains resistance jets and current which your therapist uses to optimise the intensity of your workout. The hydrotherapy pool is easily accessible to suit all patients. It also has an electric chair lift for entering the pool as an alternative to the stairs. It is important to note that you do not have to be able to swim to benefit from hydrotherapy.
All our hydrotherapy sessions are conducted by chartered physiotherapists who are highly trained and experienced in hydrotherapy. Hydrotherapy sessions are on a one to one basis with individual attention from a physiotherapist.
Hydrotherapy is physiotherapy in water. It is the safest and most progressive form of rehabilitation because it takes place in a gravity neutral environment, thus decreasing impact and trauma on weight bearing joints during rehabilitation. The simulated weightlessness allows treatment to begin earlier and more safely, allowing the water to accelerate the healing process.
