Benefits of Hydrotherapy
The warmth of the Hydrotherapy pools (33 degrees) and the hydrostatic pressure can reduce swelling, improve blood circulation, reduce muscle spasm, tight fascia & connective tissue, decrease pain and induce muscle relaxation. The supportive properties of the water can assist with stability, mobility, proprioception and balance. The resistance of the warm water, increased if needed with the use of specific aides such as hand gloves, paddles, floats & dumbells, can improve strength-endurance and cardiovascular fitness.
