Hydrotherapy uses the therapeutic effects of warm water to help treat a range of different physical problems. Leeds Physiotherapy’s specialist physiotherapists are able to provide an expert, safe and effective hydrotherapy service to people of all ages and abilities. Once a comprehensive assessment to establish your suitability for hydrotherapy has been completed you and will start one to one treatment sessions.
Your physiotherapist will use the water in different ways depending on your problem. A person with a broken leg who is unable to weight bear can use the buoyancy of water to start early partial weight bearing. People with lower back pain may use the heat to relax tight muscles and help increase range of movement. For children the environment is fun, engaging and increases stimulation.
