"Hydrotherapy amazing!"

About: King's Mill Hospital

Following major surgery after a nasty accident I was left unable to walk without use of crutches for months and in considerable pain and discomfort. I was referred to Hydrotherapy and I cannot praise the staff and facilities enough. Hydrotherapy has made an unbelievable difference in terms of alleviating pain and tension in joints. Staff worked with me on specially planned exercises and

I have been able to build up confidence and muscle strength to be able to walk unaided !

With regular hydrotherapy sessions I have also been able to reduce painkillers as sessions have eased/alleviated pain which is clearly a much healthier way of pain management. The service offered is amazing and it is a fantastic way of recovering from knee surgery and improving balance,and getting stronger ! I would totally recommend this service to anyone who has had knee or hip problems.

This facility should be promoted much more as it can make a huge difference to those recovering.

Dear Nicola,

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us with such glowing comments, which will be shared with our physiotherapists.

We are extremely proud of our physios and the great work they all do, but complements such as yours can offer an extra and well deserved morale boost.

We hope you continue to receive such good care and continue to recover well.

Thank you again, and kind regards,
