Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy providesĀ a low-gravity, stress free environment in which to exercise. The warm water creates a supporting and challenging way to improve general mobility and everyday functional tasks, as well as gentle exercise for general fitness.

The benefits of hydrotherapy for injuries include the following:

  • Easing pain and swelling.
  • Improving movement and strength.
  • Encourages healing and improves circulation.
  • Relaxation of sore muscles.
  • Improves balance in a safe environment, decreasing the risk of falls
  • Maintenance of fitness levels, allowing you to start exercising sooner after injury.

Hydrotherapy can be beneficial for conditions such as arthritis and can speed up recovery after joint replacement surgery. This not only helps to restore movement and function, but also improves confidence and independence.

Hydrotherapy can provide supported and challenging exercises to rehabilitate people who have neurological conditions. Core strength and balance are key to restoring functional abilities in brain and spinal cord injury. People effected by spasticity can be helped by warm water, allowing facilitation of movement and can increase patient comfort.

Hydrotherapy can be an excellent treatment option of either acute or ongoing problems. At Physio + Health Matters we understand the importance of preventing future injuries is an important component of your rehabilitation.
