Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy involves using the water to help treat a condition and complete your exercises. Exercising in the water helps encourage relaxation, reduces pain and improves mobility. In the water, the effects of gravity are eliminated, meaning the muscles and joints have much less force through them. This makes it an ideal place to exercise the muscles without overloading the joints.
