What is physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that assesses, diagnoses, treats, and works to prevent disease and disability through physical means. Physiotherapists are experts in movement and function who work in partnership with their patients, assisting them to overcome movement disorders, which may have been present from birth, acquired through accident or injury, or are the result of ageing or life-changing events. Physiotherapy can help you recover from injury, reduce pain and stiffness, and increase mobility. A physiotherapist can also help you prevent further injury by listening to your needs and working with you to plan the most appropriate treatment for your condition, including setting goals and treatment outcomes.
What is Hydrotherapy (Aquatic Physiotherapy)?
Hydrotherapy is a specific physiotherapist supervised treatment and exercise program in a heated pool (32°C). What is Hydrotherapy beneficial for?
- Post surgery (eg. total knee replacement)
- Assisting with injury rehabilitation
- Exercising sore and painful joints
- General fitness/balance
- Fracture recovery
The heated water encourages stiff muscles and joints to relax, whilst the buoyancy takes the load off the weight bearing joints allowing them to be exercised painlessly.
