Hydrotherapy

At NPP Neuro Group we provide complete comprehensive assessment and treatment options.

Hydrotherapy can be used standalone or as an an adjunct to the treatments that we offer.

The hydrotherapy pool is heated at 35° which is regarded as the optimal temperature for rehabilitation to relax muscles and improve circulation.

Safety is paramount with non-slip floors, hoist and stretchers making access into the pool safe and efficient.

  • Strokes

Elderly Care Conditions:

Hydrotherapy is ideal for balance training and thereby the prevention of falls.
During sessions we can maintain and improve general mobility and everyday functional tasks, as well as gentle exercise for general fitness.

Hydrotherapy can be beneficial for elderly related conditions such as arthritis, and can speed up recovery after joint replacement surgery to restore movement and function as well as confidence and independence.

Further Information about Hydrotherapy:

Spasticity can be minimized by warm water, allowing for facilitation of movement and an increase in patient comfort during rehabilitation.
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.

Sports Injuries:

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.
  • Healing and circulation encouragement.
  • Relaxation of sore muscles.
  • Maintenance of fitness levels, allowing you to start exercising sooner after injury.
