What is Hydrotherapy?

Warm Indoor Therapy Pool For:

  • Aquatic physiotherapy
  • Water exercise classes
  • Deep water running and fitness
  • Movement in water for people with disabilities
  • Aquatic massage

Hydrotherapy is the use of water for therapy, rehabilitation, exercise, relaxation and more. The unique properties of water, including the decreased effects of gravity, the effects of buoyancy, hydrostatic pressure are used by the physiotherapist along with their diagnostic skills, exercise knowledge and other treatment techniques to enhance the recovery and rehabilitation of clients with a wide range of conditions and provide a unique environment to maintain health, well-being and fitness.

Benefits of hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy can decrease pain and swelling, increase function, strength and range of movement. It has been shown to improve mood and sleep in some, fitness and weight loss in others.

Hydrotherapy was traditionally seen as physiotherapy in water. Physiotherapists used their knowledge of anatomy, physiology and exercise as well as their hands on skills and techniques to improve the rehabilitation process, health and well-being of clients with a range of problems. These days the terminology “aquatic physiotherapy” is often used to describe what physiotherapists do in the aquatic environment.

You will also find a range of activities occurring in the hydrotherapy pool including

  • aquatic physiotherapy
  • water exercise classes
  • deep water running & fitness
  • aquatic massage
  • movement in water & swimming for people with disabilities

Asiri Hospitals’ Hydrotherapy Unit is the largest and the only hydrotherapy Centre in Sri Lanka, we provide aquatic physiotherapy by qualified physiotherapists, and compliment this with land physiotherapy and various treatment options.

People usually seek the help of a Physiotherapist for 5 reasons:

  • To find out what is causing their pain or movement problem;
  • To reduce their pain;
  • To improve their movement or function;
  • To prevent injuries and improve performance;
  • To have an expert help them develop an appropriate and safe exercise program.

We offer aquatic physiotherapy treatments that cater to many health conditions. As well as having treatment in the hydrotherapy pool, many of our patients also require a component of land exercise and/or mobility training. Our programs will ensure a comprehensive approach that incorporates land and home exercise to complement and enhance what clients are doing in the hydrotherapy pool.
