Hydrotherapy

Our physiotherapists will comprehensively assess your ability to move in a warm water environment, opening up new pathways for patients to move that they wouldn’t usually achieve on land.

Water creates natural resistance to movement, which forces the muscles of your body to work harder. This creates a  positive long-term impact on muscle strength and endurance.

The added buoyancy eases movement in the pool, stimulating circulation and easing pain in the joints. This also decreases effective body weight, allowing those with too much discomfort to walk the ability to replicate land activities in a safe and supportive setting.

In general, hydrotherapy can be used to achieve the following goals:

  • Increased strength and flexibility (post injury or surgery)
  • Reduced high tone and spasticity
  • Reduced pain or hypersensitivity
  • Improved balance
  • Improved circulation and heart function, and 
  • Enhanced overall coordination

Rob treated me for several months after a workplace back injury left me very restricted. He quickly diagnosed the injury and had already reduced the pain after one session. After five months of physio and a home exercise program, I was back to 100%.
