If you are struggling with land-based activities, the warmth and buoyancy of the hydrotherapy pool can enable you greater freedom of movement. Hydrotherapy can benefit neurological patients in many ways, including:

  • Reducing stiffness and muscle tension
  • Giving you confidence to walk in a safe environment
  • Improving balance and coordination
  • Increasing general cardiovascular fitness
  • Strengthening weak muscles against the resistance of the water
  • Relaxation
  • Reducing pain on movement
  • Improving mood and motivation

There are other potential neurological conditions that may benefit from hydrotherapy. If you would like advice about whether hydrotherapy would be appropriate for your needs, please contact us.
