Within the Hydrotherapy pool we have use of a Water Treadmill and Turbo Trainer to increase resistance for running and strengthening rehabilitation.

Hydrotherapy is particularly beneficial for patients who suffer from Musculoskeletal conditions and injuries that are aggravated by weight bearing or land based exercises. By reducing the risk of aggravation, patients can confidently improve their flexibility, strength and mobility.
