Hydrotherapy

Hydro]

Hydrotherapy is simply performing physiotherapy treatment or exercises in a heated water environment. We run both individualised sessions with the Physiotherapist and weekly classes. Our Hydrotherapy classes mainly focus on back and knee rehabilitation. Our one on one sessions are tailored to suit your needs.

Benefits:

  • Unloading of joints and structures through the buoyancy of water

  • Accelerated rehabilitation and return to sport by exercising to maintain muscle strength and joint range of movement

  • Reduce post surgical rehabilitation time by strength building prior to surgery without risk of further injury

  • Reduce back pain by deloading lumbar discs and relaxation of muscle spasm with the use of a heated environment

  • Falls prevention through balance training in a fully fitted rehabilitation pool (hand rails along all edges, hoist for transfers if needed) under the supervision of physiotherapists
