Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is a safe and effective way to aid:

  • Orthopaedic rehabilitation including joint replacements
  • Spinal disorders
  • Musculoskeletal disorders
  • Neurological conditions
  • Arthritic Conditions

This is a fully self-contained unit within Lynden Hill Clinic, comprising of shower, changing rooms and toilet facilities. A special hoist to aid entrance to the water is available for the less mobile. For non-swimmers, or those unsure of water, the water is a depth of 1 metre and is maintained at 35°C.  A physiotherapist is present in the pool at all times. Each patient is assessed specifically for hydrotherapy to rule out any contra-indications.

All treatments are tailor-made to the patient’s needs.  Hydrotherapy progresses rehabilitation, addressing all aspects of muscle strengthening, core stability and range of movement, without the normal pressure of gravity. Water is an excellent medium for return to function and mobility for the rehabilitation patient.

Our Hydrotherapy department is open 6 days a week, Monday – Saturday (excluding bank holidays)
