Hi Cassey if you read through some of the other posts, there are quite a few people who have had hydrotherapy, I personally haven't but it seems that lots find it beneficial whisle others dont rate it, like most things with this awful condition once again what suits one person wont always suit the next. If your going for some :goodluck1: and :fingerscrossed: it works for you :hugs: :hugs: :flowers:

Hi

Your GP needs to refer you to the community physiotherapist team, unless the hydropool is in the hospital then it would be the hospital phsio's saying that he thinks a course of hydrotherapy may be beneficial for you. They should then do an assessment on you and put you on the waiting list for it :)

Personally I went for 2 sessions then it sent me in to one of the biggest flareups I have had so I didn't go anymore. There are others that I know that have been and find it useful, it seems to depend on who the phsio is :?: mine just pushed us a bit too hard :yikes:

:fingerscrossed: and good luck and I hope it works for you :D
