When you find it difficult to complete daily activities due to pain, weakness or stiffness, hydrotherapy provides a weightless and warm environment to complete your daily exercise or rehabilitation.
Water provides a light and warm environment to exercise weak and stiff muscles and joints. It allows you to move freely, facilitating better physical movement and function. It is beneficial for shoulder, knee, hip and spinal post-op surgery, osteo and rheumatoid arthritis or even just starting a general fitness program in a gentle environment.
Our hydrotherapy classes are for four people maximum and are always supervised by a physiotherapist. It is important to get a medical clearance from your Doctor and have an initial assessment at Lakeside Physio prior to entry into one of our classes. This ensures the exercises we provide for you are safe and effective.
