Have you had a Stroke & are you interested in EXERCISE IN WATER / HYDROTHERAPY POOL
Hydrotherapy takes place in a heated pool (35.5 C) which allows painless exercise, aiding balance and ease of movement. These hydrotherapy sessions are organised by the Cork Stroke Support Group in collaboration with COPE Foundation. Exercise in water is a useful aid to rehabilitation and recovery from a variety of conditions including stroke.
The 45 min session is facilitated by a qualified physiotherapist / hydrotherapist, and the small group facilitates individual exercise. The pool is wheelchair accessible with assistive equipment in the changing facilities & hoist for transfer. A family member or friend is asked to accompany you if you require assistance in the pool / changing room (separate cubicles available). No walking aids are permitted to access pool and participants are asked to use transfer chair if indicated.
Cost for 6 week programme €50
All attendees are required to pay CSSG annual membership €15
