AQUATIC PHYSIOTHERAPY (HYDROTHERAPY)
Applecross Physiotherapy, Physio Rehabilitation,
AQUATIC PHYSIOTHERAPY (HYDROTHERAPY) refers to physiotherapy structured and supervised exercise in water. This can be a highly effective method of regaining or improving movement, strength and balance following injury or surgery.
Movement within water removes gravitational type load on the body therefore allowing movement to occur with less chance of aggravating your injury. The effect of buoyancy can assist the movement of a joint or limb and a moderate level of resistance can also be created from turbulence.
Applecross Physiotherapy works in conjunction with Melville Aquatic Centre (Marmion St, Booragoon) and Move Well Melville Physiotherapy to provide this service. For further information regarding aquatic physiotherapy sessions call (08) 9316 1186 or discuss with your physiotherapist.
