HYDROTHERAPY

Hydrotherapy

Patients who are unable to tolerate ‘land exercise’ are introduced to pool therapy.  In this milieu the client can experience success in exercise tolerance and pain relief from the soothing effects of the water.  The client is able to exercise using the assistance of buoyancy and the resistance of the water.  Hydrotherapy is beneficial to clients post surgery or post accident when weight bearing is not allowed as yet.   Water therapy benefits seniors who find it very stimulating and yet relaxing or clients who are too weak to be able to exercise against gravity.  A physiotherapist/kinesiologist accompanies the client in the pool and will modify the exercises as applicable.  A hot tub is available for hot water exercise if needed.
