You may also want to check the pool and changing rooms before you start.
Before you start hydrotherapy, the physio will ask you about your general health and assess your individual needs. This initial assessment takes about 30 to 45 minutes. Courses of hydrotherapy vary but are usually 5 or 6 half-hour sessions.
Not all physiotherapy departments have a hydrotherapy pool. You may have to travel to another hospital.
