How can hydrotherapy help?
Hydrotherapy is a gentle form of rehabilitation completed in a specialty swimming pool. This is a low impact form of exercise completed under the supervision of a qualified physiotherapist. Many people with complex disabilities can significantly benefit from wheelchair hydrotherapy. The water allows you to move without the pressure associated with gravity. Our groups in Brisbane, Bardon and Paddington have experienced over the years how greatly hydrotherapy can help improve strength, flexibility and physical fitness under direct supervision. Whereas most people think of water exercises as having an aerobic benefit, you may be surprised to know that water is the perfect medium for providing your resistance in strength-training.
