Hydrotherapy has proven effectiveness for relieving pain and swelling. It is very helpful for people with neck and shoulder pain as well for those with pain and swelling in the wrist or hand.
Our hydrotherapy physiotherapists will tailor a specific hydrotherapy program to you, based on your specific rehabilitation goals.
Hydrotherapy pools are heated to 34 degrees. Exercise at this temperature allows for:
- Greater range of movement
- Pain relief
- Swelling reduction
- Stability building
