Derived from the Greek meaning for water healing, hydrotherapy essentially means any healing that takes place in water.  From a medical point of view, hydrotherapy is used to treat certain medical conditions using controlled exercise in water, which can be controlled/non-weight bearing, or zero/low-impact.  In order to obtain therapeutic  properties, the water must be heated and maintained at between 28 and 30˚c and be  adequately sanitised.  Some intended effects of hydrotherapy are as follows:

- Relief from pain

- Relief from swelling and stiffness

- Improved cardiovascular fitness

- Improved muscle strength

- Improved joint mobilisation

- Improved gait pattern
