Physio Matters Aquatic Physiotherapy Service

Physio Matters Aquatic Physiotherapy Service


It’s all go at Physio Matters HQ. Following the recent Aquatic Physiotherapy that Colin Green, Eirin Andersen and Katy Willerton attended it was useful to review the course at a recent In Service Training Session.

Firstly, we had a theory session where Eirin and Colin explained the use of properties of water such as buoyancy and turbulence and how they can be used to provide a useful rehabilitation environment. We also discussed various issues around pool safety, risk assessments and exercise principles.

A couple of days later, this training was complemented with a two-hour practical pool session spent discussing case studies and also developing tailored aquatic therapy programmes and further improving handling and treatment techniques. So now the whole team are all up-to-date with theory, practice and Health and Safety issues around Aquatic Therapy.

If you are looking for a team with experience and certified training in Aquatic Therapy, then look no further than Physio Matters and call us on 0161 681 6887 to discuss your needs.
