Hydrotherapy is a popular modality used by many physiotherapists in the treatment of a wide variety of conditions (Downie, 1984; Davies and Harrison, 1988).
The warmth of the water promotes muscle relaxation and pain relief and the buoyancy may be used to assist or resist joint movements as well as minimizing the compressive forces of gravity.” (Hall et.al.,1990)
Following a clinical assessment appropriate clients undertake individual hydrotherapy-adelaide sessions followed by supervised group classes. This incorporates general fitness, joint mobilisation, trunk stabilisation, balance, coordination and strengthening.
The temperature of the pool is 33°C therefore is an ideal medium for arthritis sufferers amongst other injuries. Sessions are run 3 x per week, 30-45 minute duration or by appointment.
