The use of water as a therapeutic tool allows patients to begin rehabilitation earlier than in the case of traditional therapies.
Water becomes a valuable ally for recovering in a very short time, and Sport Health is a leader in this kind of therapy!
Hydrokinesis therapy should always be considered as part of a rehabilitation programme. It complements all other methods.
Exercising in water provides the patient with a holistic experience that recognizes the intellectual, psychological, sensory and motor aspects of a person.
The use of water for therapeutic purposes helps the patient begin the rehabilitation process at an earlier point in time. He/she is then able to achieve a certain level of independence within a shorter period of time which, in turn, spurs them on to continue retraining their bodies while achieving higher levels of self confidence. When it comes to rehabilitation, hydrokinesis therapy is a crucial element for achieving a level of performance or behaviour otherwise not possible in an environment that is subject to the laws of gravity.
Under normal circumstances, inflammatory joint effusions, microtrauma and pain can also cause patients to discontinue their therapy. This does not happen in water, however. By avoiding these problems, patients have no reason to interrupt their therapy, and become increasingly aware of their motor potential.

The water temperature (which in a normal pool is about 28 ° - 29 ° C) reaches 32 ° in our rehabilitation pools.
This temperature is ideal for moving and doing exercises without getting cold and stiff muscles and joints.
