The hydrotherapy pool is a unique facility, built as part of Teesside University’s £17m investment in health and sport science facilities.
The pool provides an optimal environment for people who require supported exercise as part of a rehabilitation or training programme.
- non weight bearing training to accelerate recovery times.
- the buoyancy of the water reduces the weight of a patient by about 70 per cent significantly reducing the load on joints, limbs and tendons.
- return to fitness sooner.
“As a non-swimmer I have always had a fear of water and wouldn't even get in the hotel pool whilst on holiday! So when I found out Inward Bound had arranged sessions at my local Hydrotherapy pool I decided to go.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and I'm now gaining more confidence in the water and always looking forward to my next session.”
It’s been great watching Michelle gain confidence each visit and is attempting to learn to swim at her local swimming pool and her husband is looking forward to seeing her in the pool finally!
