Hydrotherapy, the rehabilitative exercise in water, is led by one of our specialist physiotherapists. There have been many studies into the benefits of hydrotherapy.  Studies have found hydrotherapy to be beneficial in the management of a wide range of acute and chronic conditions including arthritis, sciatica, back pain, joint pains, muscular tears, strains and sprainssports injury, chronic pain conditions (e.g. Fibromyalgia), stroke and neuro-muscular conditions and also post-surgery pain in joints.

The warmth of the pool (around 33-36 degrees) encourages vasodilation, which refers to widening of the blood vessels. This increases blood flow and circulation throughout the body. Better circulation means more oxygen and nutrients necessary for healing are getting around the body.   This can assist with reducing inflammation and stiffness around joints.  Improved circulation can also have positive effects on metabolism such as promoting red and white blood cell production or decreasing blood sugar levels. The warm water also relaxes tense muscles and reduces pain levels. Mobility levels improve and the patient is able to exercise comfortably.

The key factor behind using water in hydrotherapy is its special and effective properties. Water can store and pass on heat and energy. It can dissolve salts and minerals, absorb their qualities and it has a soothing and calming effect. It relaxes and de-stresses the mind. Among all the liquids, water has the highest specific heat count which makes it ideal for naturopathy or in this case, hydrotherapy.

Hydrotherapy Sessions

In our hydrotherapy sessions, we help patients suffering from joint, muscle related problems or sports injuries to exercise in water. The buoyancy of the water supports their joints and muscles, which helps to relieve the regular stress on their joints. Our hydrotherapy experts can work with patients suffering from a variety of problems such as depression, headaches, arthritis, joint problems and even acne.

Advantages of Hydrotherapy

Here are some of the advantages of hydrotherapy:

✓ Pain Relief: Hydrotherapy can help alleviate pain associated with conditions such as arthritis, muscle soreness, and joint inflammation. The buoyancy of water reduces the pressure on joints, providing relief and promoting relaxation.

✓ Muscle Relaxation: Warm water immersion can stimulate blood circulation and relax muscles. It helps to reduce muscle tension and spasms, making it beneficial for individuals with muscle injuries or chronic conditions.

✓ Improved Blood Circulation: The warm temperature of water used in hydrotherapy causes blood vessels to dilate, promoting better blood circulation. This can be beneficial for individuals with circulatory issues.

✓ Stress Reduction: Hydrotherapy induces a state of relaxation and can be an effective stress management tool. Warm water immersion can help reduce stress hormones and promote a sense of well-being.

✓ Enhanced Healing: Hydrotherapy can accelerate the healing process for various injuries and surgeries. Improved blood circulation and reduced inflammation contribute to faster recovery.

✓ Detoxification: Sweating induced by hot water can help eliminate toxins from the body. This is particularly true in saunas and hot baths, where the heat promotes sweating and helps the body expel impurities.

✓ Improved Sleep: Hydrotherapy’s calming effects on the nervous system can contribute to better sleep. A warm bath before bedtime, for example, can help relax the body and mind, promoting a more restful sleep.

✓ Respiratory Benefits: Steam inhalation and warm showers can be beneficial for individuals with respiratory conditions such as asthma and bronchitis. The warm, moist air helps to open airways and ease breathing.

✓ Enhanced Immune Function: Regular hydrotherapy sessions may contribute to improved immune system function by promoting circulation and reducing stress, potentially helping the body defend against illnesses.

✓ Weight Management: Aquatic exercises in water provide resistance without putting excessive strain on joints, making them suitable for individuals with mobility issues. This can be beneficial for weight management and overall fitness.
