Hydrotherapy

HYDROTHERAPY

We have an on-site heated indoor hydrotherapy pool with exercise platform and easy access chair lift.  

Hydrotherapy provides many of the conditioning and strength benefits of general exercise without the risk of joint impact injuries. Our therapists create customised pool therapy programs for rehabilitation, therapeutic maintenance, pregnancy, elite athletes, weight loss, pain relief, and cardiovascular training.

Pool entry for patients is $12 per visit ***

***Please note if you have no injuries and are not a physiotherapy patient but wish to use the pool for personal fitness objectives please ask about our Non Patient Pre Pool Assessment. 

Hydrotherapy is suitable for:
  • Arthritis
  • Chronic pain
  • Musculoskeletal problems
  • Fitness training
  • Knee and back pain
  • Weight loss
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Pregnancy
  • Post op rehab

DEEP WATER RUNNING

Being injured doesn’t mean your fitness routine has to stop. Whether you’re an athlete or just serious about maintaining your fitness, your training routine most likely involves running; when you’re injured, the thought of abandoning your rigorous training schedule is daunting. If you need movement to heal, but movement causes pain, impact-free deep water running may be the answer.

ARTHRITIS MANAGEMENT AND REHABILITATION

Hydrotherapy has been used for decades in the management of rheumatoid conditions and arthritis. The warm water, buoyancy, reduced gravity and therefore reduced loading on joints allows people with a wide range of rheumatoid conditions to achieve many positive benefits in the hydrotherapy pool, including:

  • Decreased pain and stiffness
  • Increased strength and range of movement
  • Improved mood, sleep, sense of well being
  • Manage weight
  • Improve fitness and endurance
  • Trunk and arm strengthening exercise
  • Core stability
  • Gentle stretching of your back and other structures
  • Pain management and relaxation

ORTHOPAEDIC REHABILITATION

This is possibly the most common use of hydrotherapy and includes post operative management of patients with:

  • Osteoporosis
  • Total hip and knee replacement
  • Post spinal fusion and laminectomy
  • Fractures
  • Arthroscopies
  • Post rotator cuff surgery
  • Multi-trauma

BENEFITS

  • Weight reduction and buoyancy
  • Warmth and other pain relief benefits
  • Increased movement with less pain
  • Maximize strength, movement and health

 

CAN ANYONE ACCESS THE POOL?

Anyone can book and attend a group aqua class. No physiotherapy Assessment is required. 

If you would like to use the pool independently to improve your fitness but you are not a patient nor have an injury please enquire about our Non Patient Pre Pool Assessment and see our fee below. We’d like to get to know you, understand any current or past conditions, know your confidence levels, and run through our Pool Safety policies.

DO I NEED TO BE ABLE TO SWIM?

Being able to swim is not essential, our physiotherapists will tailor a program for you and you can take advantage of our Physio Aid Supervision program. We will help you build confidence in the water. 

CAN I WEAR MY GLASSES IN THE POOL?

Yes, since treatment sessions do not require you to swim or put your head under at all. Sometimes you will be required to read the list of exercises that the physiotherapist has designed for you so your glasses may be required.

DO I NEED TO PUT MY HEAD UNDER WATER?

No. Sometimes our physiotherapists will have an exercise or treatment technique that means the back of your head might get wet but if you do not wish this to happen you can wear a bathing cap.

NO INJURIES AND NOt A Patient BUT I WANT TO IMPROVE MY FITNESS. IS THE POOL FOR ME?

Yes. We are fully supportive of anyone who wants to improve their fitness through regular exercise and the pool is an especially great way to get your whole body working without jarring your joints. Please see above "Can Anyone Access the Pool?"

ARE THERE SHOWERS AND CHANGE ROOMS AVAILABLE?

Yes.
