My Story 9 weeks post fracture.

9 weeks on after a fractured leg, receiving the first hand benefits of owning a Hot Tub. This is definitely speeding up my recovery with physio exercises. Muscle atrophy is a nightmare, time consuming trying to regain range of movement.

Submerging in the warm waters with hydrotherapy jets on being weightless is so much easier to bear. Many leg lifts and knee bends later I am now -10 / +95 in range of movement. The warm water is also improving my mood, reducing stress, improving mobility and helping reduce stiffness.
