Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is the use of exercise in a warm pool to promote muscle and joint relaxation that assists in the treatment of conditions like arthritis and chronic back pain.

The warm water gives the body a buoyant, weightless effect that makes exercise much less strenuous on the body, and all the more relaxing.

Why hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy can be an important part of a patient’s treatment plan as devised by their physiotherapist. It is more common that a patient is told by their physiotherapist or similar practitioner that they would benefit from hydrotherapy, and that they should book a class, than a patient making that decision themselves.

Do you need Hydrotherapy classes?

Hydrotherapy can be quite beneficial to those that require less strenuous exercises. The elderly fit into this category quite easily, but can also be useful for the younger generations as well.

Hydrotherapy is also a good way of complementing existing physiotherapy or treatments set out by your physiotherapist.

If you’re unsure is you would benefit from Hydrotherapy or not, give your nearest Integrated Health clinic a call and ask the question.

  • How to book a class

    Before thinking about booking a class, see one of our physiotherapists and get properly assessed. It is possible that hydrotherapy may not be the best course of action for your condition. Call your nearest Integrated Health Clinic and book an appointment with a physiotherapist, or alternatively, request an appointment via our website and we’ll get back to you with appointment availabilities
