Our Neuro Physios are able to provide hydrotherapy for those with neurological conditions at private hire pools in Herts and Essex.
Hydrotherapy is a form of rehabilitation which involves completing physiotherapy exercises in water. Our neurological physiotherapists use the buoyancy and resistance of the water to support or resist movement, either making the activity more challenging, or easier to complete, than on land.
Hydrotherapy as part of NeuroPhysio rehabilitation
At NeuroPhysio we have specialist Neurological Physiotherapists with specific training in hydrotherapy which enables them to develop neuro rehabilitation programmes to meet each person’s needs. Our neuro hydrotherapy treatment programmes are on a one to one basis, tailor made with the individual’s specific ‘land-based’ goals in mind and progressed to include swimming as required.
What are the benefits of hydrotherapy?
Water can allow a greater freedom of movement than on land.
Water can be used to provide resistance or assistance for particular movements or exercises.
Water can be used to provide a safer environment for walking and balance rehabilitation.
Water provides additional support due to buoyancy which assists weight bearing and may mean walking and standing can be practised earlier than on land.
Warm water pools can reduce pain, stiffness and muscle tone enabling improved movement.
