Help us raise funds for the Hornby Hydrotherapy Pool
Hornby Rotary is leading a fundraising campaign in association with the Greater Hornby Residents Association to get a hydrotherapy pool built as part of the new Hornby Centre which will serve the wider Christchurch community.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Hydrotherapy pool?
Hydrotherapy is the use of warm water to treat medical conditions. The water temperature is usually between 33–36°C, which is warmer than swimming pools, (typically kept at 26–28°C)
Hydrotherapy is a recognised physical and mental health treatment. The water pressure and movement act as a form of physiotherapy for body and joint pain. It can help alleviate the symptoms of a wide range of conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis, cerebral palsy, and recovery from accidents and sporting injuries.
Who can use the pool?
Everyone is welcome to use the pool. However, hydrotherapy can be particularly beneficial for anyone with a disability, a long-term health condition or anyone who is rehabilitating from an operation or injury.
What are the benefits of hydrotherapy compared with land-based physiotherapy?
