Hydrotherapy or aquatic physiotherapy is the use of physiotherapy techniques and principles applied in a warm water pool. By using the water’s buoyancy, you can complete pain-free movements that can assist in restoring your function and range of movement. Hydrotherapy is ideal for people with chronic disease, postoperative surgery and general immobility.
Hydrotherapy can be conducted on a one-on-one basis, or in group sessions. Each hydrotherapy session incorporates individual assessment, diagnosis and the use of clinical reasoning skills to formulate a treatment program that is appropriate to your needs. We join you in the water to help you through each movement. If you have a pool at home or in your complex, we can come to you. Contact us today to discuss your needs further.
*Private health insurance rebates are available for all hydrotherapy services.
Our physiotherapists conduct hydrotherapy sessions at Opal Ashmore Aged Care, 100 Wardoo Street, Ashmore.
