Exercising in water is great for rehabilitation
Our hydrotherapy pool is specifically designed for rehabilitation. It is set at a warm 34 to 35 degrees Celsius, which is ideally suited to help your muscles and joints stay warm and improve movement.
Water reduces the impact exercise has on your joints, muscles and bones and keeps you buoyant, which means things that might be hard for you to do on land are easier in the pool.
