Have an initial assessment at either our BB or BH clinics first to decide what the goals of treatment are and whether Aquatic Physiotherapy is the best way to manage your condition and that it is safe for you to attend.

Once it has been deemed that hydrotherapy is appropriate, our friendly admin staff will organise a time for you to meet your therapist at the pool and they’ll give you all the information regarding your appointment.
Initial assessment- medication list, any imaging results.
