Hydrotherapy and walk in baths

Hydrotherapy spa’s, when fitted to our walk in baths, circulate bubbles and thus massage the body and limbs and is a well used form of therapy in mainland Europe. However, in England, it is only recently being recognised as an effective treatment despite it being introduced by the Romans many years ago.

How is hydrotherapy used? A specific rehabilitation program is designed for every different medical condition. Certain clients only make use of a hydrotherapy program for a limited period of time, while others with more serious conditions utilize the sessions religiously. Hydrotherapy fills the gap between the physiotherapist and the patient’s every day life. A well qualified hydro therapist works closely with the patient’s physiotherapist to create a safe and functional exercise program. The hydro therapist continues treatment after the physiotherapist has completed the initial rehabilitation program and does under no circumstances replace physiotherapy. The programs are designed to assist in activities of daily living (ADL Programs) It is very obvious that every special medical condition has to be treated on a personal basis.
