Hydrotherapy or Aquatic Physiotherapy involves undertaking exercise therapy in a heated pool, utilizing the basic principles of water to assist joint movements and muscle activity that may otherwise be difficult on land.
Appropriate individual programs are developed to address the specific needs of each patient.
Conditions that will benefit from Hydrotherapy include:
Women's Health Hydrotherapy
Suitable for women during stages of pregnancy, post natal or pelvic floor recovery. Water based exercise can assist with taking load off the joints such as hips and back. Pool exercises are also non-weight bearing, meaning it is a 'pelvic floor safe' way to exercise.
An initial assessment in our Clinic is required prior to attending the pool. The groups are run in small class sizes with participants all focusing on their own individualised program under the direction of the Physiotherapist. This ensures that the exercises are done properly and safely.
Hydrotherapy is suitable for people who cannot swim.
Health rebates may apply.
Classes are run by trained Physiotherapy staff and held at Golden Grove State Swim, 151 The Golden Way, Golden Grove.
