Physiotherapy, Group Therapies

What is water rehabilitation
Perhaps better known as physiotherapy in water or hydrokinesiotherapy, this is remedial exercise performed in water at the temperature of 29-33 °C. In many of our spas, the water used is naturally thermal. The exercises are lead by a physiotherapist standing ashore. 

How water rehabilitation helps
Because of the buoyancy, resistance and chemical effects of the water, it is very effective for persons with degenerative diseases of the weight-carrying joints in addition to post-operative rehabilitation. It is also suitable for overweight people or those who are unable to perform group exercises on the floor.

Medical prescription: depending on selected treatment and current health status

Exercise pools have railings along the sides so you can hold on to them while training. Some also have a water lift for those handicapped patients who experience difficulty walking the stairs down into the pool. You need not be a swimmer to take place in this group exercise.
