AQUA CYCLING for KNEE and HIP REHABILITATION and RECONDITIONING
Who is it for?
People suffering from knee or hip osteoarthritis. Post partial or total knee replacement, hip replacement or any surgery or injury of the knee.
What is it?
Wet Bikes’ 6-week aquatic cycling programme offers a safe and effective way to alleviate your symptoms, strengthen and recondition your leg muscles and improve your cardiovascular fitness.
Stationary cycling and water based exercises are frequently recommended for patients suffering with osteoarthritis or recovering from knee and hip surgery or injury, therefore combining both is an obvious step. Wet Bikes provides state of the art aqua bikes and a bespoke aquatic cycling routine, specifically designed to work the muscles supporting your knee and hip joints.
You will cycle using our stationary bikes immersed in a swimming pool, with water up to your waist, doing exercises specifically designed for your condition.
We keep group sizes small so we can focus on you, with a maximum 6 people with similar issues and level of fitness, all provided in a welcoming and friendly environment.
The hydrostatic pressure and buoyancy of the water relieves the stress of body weight, aids muscle relaxation, decreases joint compression and reduces pain. Cycling against the resistance of the water contributes to strengthening your leg muscles in the safest possible environment, while providing effective cardiovascular training.
When and where?
Next 6 weeks programme starts on Monday the 25th of June at Nuffield Health Guildford. Exact day and time to be agreed between participants and the personal trainer for the duration of the 6 weeks period.
It includes 6 sessions of aqua cycling and personalised home exercises.
Price £70 (discounted rate of £56 for Nuffield Health members or referral from a Nuffield Health Physiotherapist).
