Rehabilitation sessions

Undertaking rehabilitation in water (hydrotherapy) doesn't simply mean to swim, but means you can through the properties of the water perform specifically defined exercises to support your functional recovery.

Exercising in water has many benefits for the patient, firstly the gravity reducing effects of water allow for earlier practice of functional exercises than possible on land and performed at lower body weights, thereby avoiding potentially high loads which could cause injury if performed on land.

The resistance effects of the water allows the maintenance of uniform muscular tension during movements supporting the recovery of muscle strength and flexibility.

During the hydrotherapy sessions, the patient is always under the guidance of the hydrotherapist, both when they are in or out on the side of the pool. When the rehabilitation specialist is in the water they can stay near the patient providing them safety and supporting them through their exercise programme. At other times, the rehabilitation specialist will need to be on the side of the pool to observe the patients and easily demonstrate to the patients their exercises and correct any mistakes, and also coordinating the work of all the patients in the water.

The pool environment and warm water temperatures of our pools help the patients completely relax and enable the rehabilitation specialist to optimise the patient care.

Isokinetic’s hydrotherapy pools are also suitable for patients who are not experienced swimmers, with different depths and appropriate supports and tools to allow for rehabilitation activity in those who can’t swim. Our pool in London is also ozone treated.
