Client Testimonial

When I came to live in Cayman I decided to train for Ironman distance triathlon. I could not have done it without Christine. She has been an inspiration, a guide and most importantly a skilled and flexible physiotherapist. She has seen me through strains, foot dysfunction, tendonitis, and a wide variety of things which have niggled me. She has kept me training, where safe and possible to do so, but has been firm and stopped me when I really needed to rest. I have been through knee surgery and recovery and found her techniques and imagination in finding a way to heal, eliminate pain, and renew functionality without comparison. She will help you get back to whatever level of functionality you need. If you need a physio, go to the best!

Aqua Therapy

Aquatic therapy, or hydrotherapy, is the use of water in the treatment of various musculoskeletal conditions.

Specific exercises are performed in water, using water aids and floats to harness the effects of water resistance and buoyancy, making the exercises more or less challenging for the individual.

Aqua therapy can be used to improve range of movement, strength & flexibility and reduce symptoms of pain. It can also help to promote fitness, a sense of well-being and confidence. Whilst in water, the pressure through your joints is minimal. The effects of 'weightlessness' enables the individual to perform difficult land based exercises much more easily in water, leading to quicker results. This weightlessness also means aqua therapy is a useful tool for early rehabilitation exercises when the individual has a restricted weight bearing status or remains on walking aids as instructed by a Consultant.

Aqua therapy can be used to help treat a variety of conditions including osteoarthritis and rheumatism, post-surgical intervention such as a total knee replacement, ACL repair, or shoulder surgery, general musculoskeletal injuries such as an acute ankle sprain, or spinal related injuries such as a disc prolapse or sciatica.

At A Step Ahead Physiotherapy we offer one to one, individually tailored hydrotherapy sessions.
