Our hydrotherapy sessions take place every Thursday morning in the hydro pool at Leicester General Hospital. The pool is heated to average body temperature to make movement of painful or damaged joints easier, especially as the buoyancy of the water reduces the weight placed on the joints during exercise. There are stations around the pool with instructions on different exercises to follow and once a month a physiotherapist attends the sessions to assist and advise members. Although the session is only weekly, the benefits help participants by reducing pain and increasing mobility. The activity is heavily subsidised and each session costs only £3.50 (paid monthly in advance).

It is a members only activity and there is a waiting list. If you would like to be considered for a place, please express your interest via email: info@arthritissupport.org.uk
