Hydrotherapy is the use of water to assist in the rehabilitation of people with movement disorders.

Immersion in water can assist with strengthening, balance, gait re-education. It can also be used to help with relaxation!

At Bristol neurophysio, we have extensive experience of working with people with neurological conditions in hydrotherapy pools.

We have extensive knowledge of the pools in Bristol and the surrounding area that are suitable for water-based activities, with consideration of various access requirements. Depending on your individual needs it may be best to work with you in a specialist hydrotherapy pool; or often it may be possible to implement water-based exercise and therapy at your local public swimming pool.

Some kind words

I had a Stroke 18 months ago and only contacted Bristol Neurophysio six weeks ago. I had a prompt response and appointment made for the following week, unfortunately I had to cancel this due to illness. Kirsty was extremely understanding and rescheduled immediately. I have had three sessions since and am extremely pleased with my progress towards my wish to walk, for the first time I feel this will happen. It is hard work and tiring but Kirsty is always cheerful and encouraging and each time makes the tasks achievable. At last someone understands what it's like for me and takes time to explain how my Stroke has affected me. Watch this space as I'm sure I will be posting a new testimonial when I am walking again.
