POOL-BASED REHABILITATION (HYDROTHERAPY)

Reach Physiotherapy offers pool-based hydrotherapy sessions in Brighton which can be very beneficial especially for early stage rehabilitation.

What is hydrotherapy/aquatic therapy?

The idea of pool-based therapy is that the buoyancy of water allows acute and post-operative patients a chance to progress faster in their rehabilitation than they would on dry land and with less pain. The treatment form includes special exercises that are focusing on slow movements and relaxation in a warm-water pool (typically 33–36ºC). Our highly trained therapists can work with all ages and injuries to speed up your return to fitness.

The benefits of hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy (a.k.a Aquatic therapy) is an effective way to restore range or movement, flexibility and co-ordination, as well as improve balance and mobility. Hydrotherapy is an excellent rehabilitation form to ease pain in joints and to improve circulation. The resistance of water helps to improve muscle strength, and the support it gives helps with pain management. The aquatic therapy pool offers a pleasant environment for rehabilitation and the warmth of the water helps relax muscles.

Aquatic therapy can be extremely effective treatment form for patients rehabilitating from various types of arthritis, connective tissue diseases, strokes, sciatica, injured limbs, chronic back pain, headaches, insomnia and asthma. Aquatic therapy can help you with:

  • Pain management
