Water seems to have a miraculous, and therapeutic, effect on the human body. I know it does for me. I feel more relaxed and more interested in movement. Since I have had MS, being submerged in water makes movement much easier as the weight of my body is already supported by the buoyancy of the water
So I jumped at the chance of trying hydrotherapy at the Centre when the physio team offered me an 8 week course.
I admit I had a few niggling little anxieties: did the physio team have experience of dealing with a wheelchair user like me, in the pool? After all, I have just limited movement in my right arm and hand, pus good head movement: how would I cope with being in the water? My confidence level was not high.
