Mobility and balance can be affected by strokes, MS, Parkinson's and other neurological conditions. These conditions can be tough to deal with and as symptoms escalate, the last thing sufferers want to do is exercise.
However, introducing appropriate exercise can be enjoyable, give some much needed social interaction and help people feel more positive.
Hydrotherapy is an ideal way to exercise. It helps muscle tone, improves balance, encourages gait re-education, works specific muscle groups and generally improves quality of life.
Mobility problems are overcome as water jets can be positioned to actually help lift legs up and the therapeutic qualities of the water create a sense of wellbeing.
