AQUATIC PHYSIOTHERAPY (HYDROTHERAPY)

 

Hydrotherapy uses water as an exercise medium. It utilises the hydrostatic pressure and positive buoyancy of water to reduce the effect of gravity on the body. The benefits can include increased functional strength and decreased swelling and pain in joints. Hydrotherapy can be used to treat a multitude of different conditions:

  • Sports injuries

  • Post-operative and orthopaedic conditions

  • Spinal pain and/or injuries

  • Neurological conditions

  • Cardio-respiratory problems

  • Balance dysfunction

  • Women’s health complaints

  • Arthritis and aged care.

Our Physiotherapists can design an individual program to suit your rehabilitation needs.
