Internationally known as a leader and innovator in hydrotherapy, Margaret Reid Campion has long been associated with the Halliwick approach to exercise techniques in water. This book combines her previous works on paediatric and adult hydrotherapy: the valuable rehabilitative and recreational ideas for children in water are linked with constructive and sensible guidelines for both traditional and original prescriptions for the rehabilitation of adults.

In this contemporary and completely revised edition an impressive range of contributors have been gathered together to produce a definitive but practical text. Throughout the awareness of the value of the principles and practice of the Halliwick Method are linked to managing hydrotherapy treatments.

Essential reading for physiotherapy students at all levels Hydrotherapy: Principles and Practice will be invaluable as the basic hydrotherapy text.
