As with all our consultations, if you are ever unsure about an exercise that has been prescribed or any questions about your injury, please feel free to email your exercise physiologist or physiotherapist directly for confirmation or reassurance at any time.

Specialised Group Classes

Group class 1: Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is the use of water for therapy, rehabilitation, exercise, relaxation and more. The unique properties of water, including the decreased effects of gravity, the effects of buoyancy and hydrostatic pressure are used by our clinicians along with their diagnostic skills, exercise knowledge and other treatment techniques to enhance the recovery and rehabilitation of clients with a wide range of conditions.

Hydrotherapy is useful for:

  • Post-operative: particularly early stage rehabilitation
  • Chronic pain: low impact while challenging your system
  • Arthritis: reducing load, allowing pain free movement
