A hydrotherapy pool is warmer than a swimming pool (32 – 35.5ºC versus 29 ºC), meaning that patients experience physiological benefits over and above what can be achieved in lower-temperature environments, which aids recovery and wellbeing – for example, improved circulation, improved renal function, improved respiratory function, reduced muscle spasms and spasticity, and reduced pain.
