Aquatic therapy, also known as hydrotherapy, is physiotherapy that involves the use of water for treatment of a wide range of conditions. The properties of the water temperature, pressure and buoyancy helps improve circulation, reduce weight-bearing stresses and reduce pain.

Exercise in the pool is a great help for easing conditions such as arthritis and muscle pain. It can also be used for rehabilitation after operations such as hip or knee replacements and for musculoskeletal disorders generally. It can be used in combination with normal physiotherapy sessions to add variety and speed up rehabilitation.

Our physiotherapist will be with you in the pool and is specialised in practising hydrotherapy so you can be assured of a professional service. Your condition will be assessed and a personalised exercise programme will be designed to meet your needs.

All hydrotherapy sessions take place in the La Mon Country Club swimming pool. You do not have to be able to swim as the pool is quite shallow so you can exercise well within your comfortable depth. The pool is accessible to all with shallow steps and hand rails
