Spasticity can be helped by warm water, allowing facilitation of movement and can increase patient comfort.
Core strength and balance are key to restoring functional abilities in brain and spinal cord injury. Hydrotherapy can provide supported and challenging exercises to rehabilitate these mechanisms.
These can be acute or ongoing problems, and we understand the importance of preventing future injuries as a important component of your rehabilitation.
Hydrotherapy can be effective for ligament sprains, achilles tendon injuries, fractures, ACL and PCL knee injuries, and for post- operative rehabilitation to restore strength and function.
The benefits of hydrotherapy for sports injuries include the following:
Easing pain and swelling.
Improving movement and strength.
Encouraging healing and improving circulation.
Relaxation of sore muscles.
Maintenance of fitness levels, allowing you to start exercising sooner after injury.
