I have recently had a hip replacement under the NHS but am struggling with some of the exercises due to pain is there any way I can be treated by hydro pool which will assist with my recovery as my surgeon has advised swimming would help

Dear Jeanette

We are sorry to hear that you are experiencing pain when exercising following your hip replacement.

We would suggest that you contact your GP or Consultant (if you are still under their care) to explain the issues you are experiencing. If appropriate they can refer you to our MSK service for an assessment and ongoing support.

Unfortunately we are unable to provide hydro therapy pool sessions through the Bexley MSK service.

Kind regards

Lisa Cooper
Associate Director

this looks good is it still in action? do you have a hydrotherapy pool?

Dear Sarah

Sorry for the delay in responding to your question. The Bexley MSK Service uses the hydrotherapy pool at Goldie Leigh for one session a week, patients who would benefit from hydrotherapy can be referred for this treatment once they have been assessed by a physiotherapist.

Kind regards

Helen Jones
