Let the heated water hold you up
Hydrotherapy, or aquatic therapy, is the prescription and completion of exercises whilst in a heated pool. This can be incredibly effective for any health or musculoskeletal conditions, and for individuals who may find it difficult to exercise on land, or who experience significant joint pain.
Our Hydrotherapy by Empowered Healthcare Accredited Exercise Physiologists provides water-based exercises specifically tailored to you to help you get back to being a healthier you.
Conditions which benefit from Hydrotherapy in contrast to land-based exercise:
- Back pain
- Joint pain
- Neurological conditions
- Hip and knee replacements
- Some disabilities
Greater improvements in mobility and symptom reduction in the above conditions is seen due to the supportive buoyant aquatic environment to take the load off joints, and the warmth of the water which assists in pain relief.
At Empowered Healthcare, we use the Swimmerz Academy Hydrotherapy pool to complete our water-based exercise! This lovely, 34 degree, 1.2m deep pool features easy stair access, a water wheelchair and accessible changerooms with showers to cater for all of your personal needs!
We offer group-based and one-on-one Exercise Physiology sessions with a focus on exercise technique, prescription and appropriate progression. Group-based sessions are limited to numbers to ensure all individuals are closely monitored to ensure safe and effective exercise technique and ability for assistance where necessary.
