Rehabilitation following spinal surgery.
Following spinal surgery Wendy Spencer struggled to mobilise for more than 2 to 3 minutes before having to sit down to relieve her symptoms. Her walking speed was extremely slow, her posture was stooped and she was in constant pain.
- Duration: 30 minutes
- Water Temperature: 31º
- Speed: 2.0 to 4.0kph
- Depth: 1100mm
- Resistance Jets: Not activated
- Direction: Forwards, backwards and sideways
- Number of Sessions: 12
Wendy’s treatment plan included underwater treadmill sessions, physiotherapy and cryo cuff therapy.
The water decompressed her spine and allowed a greater range of movement while exercising.
The sessions were designed to work all muscle groups and provide the opportunity to increase exercise intensity without the risk of injury.
Poor posture and mobility meant that knee and hip pain had also become a problem for Wendy but this reduced during her treatment.
As a result, not only has Wendy’s muscle strength, tone and flexibility improved, she’s lost weight and is feeling much more positive about her situation.
