Neuro Hydrotherapy

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.

What does hydrotherapy involve?

NeuroPhysio hydrotherapy programmes often encompass a wide array of exercises, activities or games as part of a comprehensive rehabilitation programme. The goals may include strengthening, stretching, mobilising, balance training, walking practice, cardiovascular challenge or relaxation. The hydrotherapy physio will likely use a variety of different equipment including floats, balls and weights to ensure that the programme is both interesting and rewarding.

Helen worked with my 88 year old Mum following her knee replacement. I was very very impressed. Personable, knowledgeable, supportive, she got my Mum full mobilised and back playing bowls. She had her operation in November 2018 and was she was back playing bowls in January 2019. My Mum has now had a refurbishment of her replacement hip and I have no hesitation in going back to her and recommending her to others.

An inner ear problem last July that developed into vestibular neuritis led to problems with the muscles, nerves and joints in my neck which caused nausea, dizziness, vision problems as well as the usual aches and pain. In February I came to the Physio4 You team in despair. Rachel did a thorough vestibular assessment and was able to reassure me that the vestibular problem was resolved. I was then given Helen’s details for the neck issues. She has been a real Godsend. She is calm, friendly, reassuring and professional. After a thorough exam in which she listened carefully to my history of symptoms, she took time to explain what the problem was and a plan for treatment going forward. This problem has caused me real anxiety at times. She set my mind at rest that I will get better. I am still undergoing treatment but there has been a vast improvement. She takes time to answer all my questions and I always leave feeling so positive. I would thoroughly recommend their services
