An advanced form of exercise and water therapy, Hydrotherapy can be used as a form of rehabilitation to aid joint range of motion and strengthen muscles, as well as ease aches and pains (acute or chronic).

The Hydrotherapy pool at College Grove is heated between 28 and 35 degrees and provides an ideal setting for advanced therapy in the form of one-on-one sessions and group classes, as well as the option for guided exercise where you can do your own workout routine with help and guidance from a trained ECH Exercise Physiologist.

Hydrotherapy can help you in several ways

  • The warm water allows muscles to relax and eases pain on joints
  • The water supports your weight, which helps to relieve pain and increase range of movement in joints
