HydrotherapyImprove your physical well-being
Is your workplace set up to accommodate the specific requirements of an injured worker? How will your employee cope when they return to work?
Hydrotherapy is a form of physiotherapy treatment or exercises performed in a heated pool.
“The buoyancy and (resistance) of water you experience creates a special therapeutic environment unlike any other form of exercise, which is why it is often recommended for rehabilitating injuries.
How it works
Our hydrotherapy programs are set up and monitored by an accredited exercise physiologist, who is qualified and experienced in providing hydrotherapy treatment.
Following an initial assessment, the individual will receive a hydrotherapy program designed to target their specific rehabilitation needs. We will step them through the exercises and provide ongoing support to monitor progress.
The length of a hydrotherapy program varies depending on the extent of the injury, recovery and the individual’s (ability) to self manage the program and exercises. Where appropriate, a hydrotherapy program will progress to a land-based gym program.
Hydrotherapy assists you to:
- Begin gentle exercises soon after injury, which helps speed up the rate of recovery
- Strengthen your muscles
- Enhance your flexibility
- Improve your coordination and balance
- Increase cardiovascular fitness
- Manage injury related pain better
- Improve overall relaxation
