MUSCULAR DYSTOPHY UK REPORT ON ACCESS TO HYDROTHERAPY
EDM #817
Tabled 03 December 2015
2015-16 Session
That this House welcomes the new report by Muscular Dystrophy UK on the urgent need to increase access to hydrotherapy across the UK; notes that many health professionals believe it improves or maintains mobility, strength and flexibility and is a good form of aerobic exercise for people with muscle-wasting conditions; expresses concern that individuals and families living with muscle-wasting conditions are being turned away from some hydrotherapy pools after being told they are only for use by people with broken bones; further notes that there are more than twice the number of hydrotherapy pools available for animals compared to those available for people; recognises the need for reasonable adjustments to be made to community swimming pools to ensure that they are accessible for people with muscle-wasting conditions; calls on the NHS to ensure that everyone with a muscle-wasting condition who requires hydrotherapy receives a referral; and further calls for a national review of hydrotherapy provision to be undertaken by the Department for Health.
