Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is a water-based form of physiotherapy. The benefits of performing physiotherapy in heated water are numerous. The key differences compared to physiotherapy on land are that the heat and apparent weightlessness experience in this environment can:

· reduce muscle spasticity

· reduce pain

· make movements easier

· help maintain skills being lost on land

· enable new skills to be learnt in an unencumbered environment

· enhance cardiovascular response to exercise

· enhance general fitness

Your child will access hydrotherapy if this is a requirement on their statement of special educational needs and will follow a programme devised by a physiotherapist. Our pupils access hydrotherapy at our primary feeder school, Ysgol Pen Coch.
