Hydrotherapy service at the Royal Berks Hospital:
Hydrotherapy is physiotherapy in a warm water pool. A physiotherapist works with you as you gently exercise in the pool. Hydrotherapy makes physiotherapy much easier because the warm water relaxes taut muscles enabling you to do exercises that you could not do out of water. The water also bears your weight making your body feel lighter.The MS Society branch runs courses lasting for six weeks in the hydro pool at The Royal Berkshire Hospital on Wednesday evenings. The sessions are proving so popular that we now run two sessions of one hour’s duration at 5 and 6pm. For further information contact Diane Goodlock on 0118 926 7174 or visit their website.
