FORCEMEDIC provides treatment and rehabilitation services with hydrotherapy and the use of water. This form of rehabilitation, performed in a swimming pool, uses a safe and gentle approach to improving functional mobility, muscle strength, balance and the ability to walk.

Water weightlessness impact reduces pain and increases the range of motion. In contrast, water resistance allows muscle strengthening using buoyancy aids modifying the levels of difficulty.  Hydrotherapy can also be used to replicate a difficult movement (go up a step or walk without technical assistance) or as a physical or sports training.

This low resistance motor stimulation is suitable for different orthopedic disorders (osteoarthritis, muscular pain, muscular atrophy, etc.) and for some cardiac and pulmonary conditions.
