On Land

Hands-on Manual

We apply either a Clinical Room Only or a combination of Clinical Room Physio and Aquatic Physio (Hydrotherapy) for maximum effect.

Clinical Room sessions in the land-based practice are 45 minutes to facilitate accurate assessment and ensure thorough treatment for maximum progress and return to work, sport or lifestyle.

In Pool

Hydrotherapy (Aquatic Physio)

Hydrotherapy – also called Aquatic Physio – is an evidence-based treatment that is generally much underrated as an adjunct to Traditional Physiotherapy In-Rooms Manual and Exercise Therapy treatment, which we us to great effect.
