We are very fortunate to have access to a dedicated hydrotherapy pool for clients, that is maintained at 35 degrees Celsius. The warm water and natural buoyancy provide an ideal therapeutic environment.
Esperance Physiotherapy provides clients with written hydrotherapy (also called aqua physiotherapy) programs.
This type of therapy is ideal for many clients like;
- Pre-surgery workup (i.e. physical preparation 8-12 weeks before surgery)
- Post-surgery early recovery (e.g. total knee or hip replacement), rotator cuff repair, ACL reconstruction
- Multiple sites of trauma (e.g. car accident)
or for people with ongoing problems that need to have a structured exercise program that doesn't aggravate their symptoms;
- Forms of arthritis
- Fibromyalgia syndrome
or people with a temporary issue;
- Stress fracture
In common with all of these groups is the need for a structured exercise program that consists of aerobic, strength, flexibility, and balance exercises. To provide this attention to detail, prior to attending these hydrotherapy sessions you require a land assessment with our physiotherapists.
