How does Hydrotherapy Work?

  1. The heated pool relaxes muscles and therefore relieves pain
  2. The hydrostatic effect of the water pressure increases blood circulation
  3. The buoyancy effect of the water assists movement creating a massage effect while relieving the stress of gravity

Strengthening exercises can be performed in a low gravity environment. Exercises that would be too painful to perform on land are easily achieved in the water. The exercises strengthen muscles and result in improved mobility on land. It is a good reintroduction into exercise for Worksafe and TAC patients.
