Hydrotherapy Classes

Hydrotherapy, also known as water therapy or aquatic exercise, is a form of physical therapy that takes place in a heated pool. This helps increase comfort while exercising and reduce muscle and joint pain.

The water reduces the amount of pressure on the joints, which allows people to perform exercises during early phase of injury and particularly effective with chronic pain.

Some potential benefits of hydrotherapy include:

  1. Reducing pain and swelling: The buoyancy of the water can help reduce pain and swelling in the joints, making it easier to move and exercise.
  2. Improving flexibility and range of motion: The resistance of the water can help improve flexibility and range of motion in the joints.
  3. Improving muscle strength: The resistance of the water can also help improve muscle strength and endurance.
  4. Improving cardiovascular fitness: Hydrotherapy can provide a low-impact cardiovascular workout, which can help improve heart health.
  5. Improving balance and coordination: The unstable nature of the water can help improve balance and coordination.
  6. Reducing stress: Hydrotherapy can be a relaxing and enjoyable form of exercise, which may help reduce stress and improve mental well-being.
  7. Rehabilitation: Hydrotherapy is often used in rehabilitation settings to help individuals recovering from injuries or surgeries. The buoyancy of the water can make it easier to perform exercises and help with the recovery process.
  8. Suitable for all fitness levels: Hydrotherapy can be modified to accommodate people of all fitness levels, making it an accessible form of exercise for everyone.

Our classes are run by our senior physiotherapist at Broadmeadows Leisure centre and each patient will have a individualised program for their condition and goal.
