October 2021 News

Our Hydrotherapy service is temporarily suspended due to Covid-19.

Our Physiotherapy professional regulations still stipulate that Physiotherapists working in a pool area need to wear a face mask and maintain a 2-metre distance.

After risk assessing, we feel that a 2 metre distance from the patient would compromise their safety, especially considering the risk of slippage on the wet pool side floor and changing rooms; and particularly if the patient is on crutches and has mobility problems.

The pool environment is very warm and wearing a mask in this area may cause breathing difficulties for the Physiotherapist and patient. The pool area can also be noisy and a mask may affect the Physiotherapist and the patient’s voice volume and ability to be heard and understood, which again poses a risk to their safety.

The following link details the Covid hydrotherapy/pool guidance from the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy HERE.

Below is our Hydrotherapy service information which we hope to be able to resume in the future, but is currently inactive -

If you are a Physiocure® patient seeing one of our Physiotherapists for 'dry land' treatment and rehab, you can have the added benefit of booking into one of our hydrotherapy sessions, we are sorry but we can-not offer hydro to patients who do not see us for ‘dry land’ Physio in our clinic. The 30 minute Hydro sessions are one-to-one only sessions and held twice a week in the pool at Cookridge Hall and cost £40. As with all our services, we require 24 hours notice of cancellation, or a full charge for that session is applicable. Patients must be safe to mobilise around the wet pool area and able to enter and exit the pool via the step ladder. The pathway has non-slip mats laid down to walk on. The Physiotherapist will be with you to help you with your crutches and guide you in the safe method to get in and out of the pool according to your procedure. We see many patients after surgery, especially hip arthroscopy, peri-acetabular osteotomy (PAO) and total hip replacement (THR). It is important that patients have no open wounds or infections, no uncontrolled epilepsy, no uncontrolled diabetes, no recent strokes or heart attacks or any general illness such as vomiting and/or diarrhoea. A full risk and healthy and safety assessment form must be completed before we can deem hydrotherapy appropriate for you at our clinic.

Exercise in our pool under the supervision of a Chartered Physiotherapist offers many benefits. The buoyancy of the water means that in situations where you have restricted weight bearing through your lower limb exercises can be done that would not be possible on dry land.

We can also use the resistance of the water to help exercise muscles, floatation aids to increase buoyancy or create more resistance. It is an ideal environment for gait re-education and balance retraining, and additionally an opportunity to meet other patients who are recovering from injuries or surgery.

Please CLICK HERE for our FREE downloadable hip hydrotherapy guide on this website if you are a hip arthroscopy patient. For PAO and THR patients, please do not follow this guide, some of the exercises are not appropriate, we will individually tailor exercises for you.

  • I travelled 5 hours by car from my home in Sussex for two days of intensive sessions with many different people in the Physiocure team. I can say without any reservation that not only was it more than worth the trip, but that I would and will do it again, because the care, concern, dedication and professionalism of everyone I encountered at Physiocure was absolutely outstanding.
