How can hydrotherapy help?
Hydrotherapy is a gentle form of rehabilitation completed in a specialty swimming pool. This is a low impact form of exercise completed under the supervision of a qualified physiotherapist. Many people with complex disabilities, in particular those in a wheelchair, can significantly benefit from hydrotherapy. The water allows movement without the pressure associated with gravity. Hydrotherapy can help improve strength, flexibility and physical fitness under direct supervision.
