Evidence for Hydrotherapy

A randomized controlled trial was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of hydrotherapy in women with knee osteoarthritis. Seventy-three women aged 65 and older were randomized to hydrotherapy or a control group. The hydrotherapy group received the intervention program in a heated pool (twice per week for six weeks) and an educational protocol while the control group received an educational protocol only.

The hydrotherapy group had better outcomes for pain and function. Patients receiving hydrotherapy had better performance for knee flexor and extensor strength, knee flexor power, and knee extensor endurance.

An experimental study was carried out to compare the effect of Hydrotherapy based exercises and conventional physiotherapy in chronic nonspecific low back pain. A total 30 patients were equally divided into two groups using convenient sampling with random allocation (Group A and Group B). Group A was given Conventional Therapy and Group B was given Hydrotherapy. While on comparing post interventional values, the results between two groups revealed that there was statistically significant difference seen. From the study, it is concluded that there was significant improvement in subjects who underwent conventional therapy and hydrotherapy.

WHAT THE TREATMENT INVOLVES

Prior to a Hydrotherapy session all patients must be assessed on land by one of our specialist Physiotherapists so that we can obtain a full medical history as well as completing a risk assessment prior to accessing the pool area. All patients will be required to complete a Hydrotherapy consent form and a PAR-Q. Treatment sessions last for approximately 45 minutes in the pool but are blocked out for 60 minutes to allow your therapist time to change in between clients.
