Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy = Physio in water! Hydro is a fantastic and fun way to perform supervised rehabilitation exercises in a light weight and comfortable environment.

Exercises are individualised with close supervision from your Physio, and we also do some suitable group exercises depending on your condition.

Key benefits
• Buoyancy from body immersion creates a de-loading effect on the body allowing easier movement and pain reduction
• Warm water (approx. 37 deg) is soothing for body soreness and painful disorders
• Hydrostatic resistance created when moving in water is seven times greater than that of air and can be used for gentle strengthening exercises
• Compression effect of water immersion helps with swelling, balance and pain
• Supervised hydro is particularly effective when combined with other land based physio and exercises
• You don’t need to be a swimmer to participate, pool depth is to approx. 1.5m with rail and ramp entry (and water wheelchair if needed)

What to expect in your consult?

Your initial new episode consultation will involve a comprehensive assessment where we ascertain your relevant history and medical history, followed by a physical examination to determine the diagnosis and cause of your problem.

This will be discussed with you where we form a treatment plan for your needs. The treatment may vary but will often include a combination of “hands on therapies”, taping, advice, exercise therapies, dry needling as well as other options.
