Water has been used for physiotherapeutic purposes for hundreds of years, forming an integral part of traditional medicine practices. At Physio Melbourne Clinic, we’re proud to offer hydrotherapy services in a public pool or from the comfort and privacy of your private pool. Our physio will get you to carry out special exercises which relieve discomfort and promote physical wellness, with a program that’s tailored to you based on your specific circumstances and requirements. We’re confident you’ll see positive results in the days and weeks after you try hydrotherapy, leading to a happier and healthier life.
Our hydrotherapy in St Kilda involves doing various special exercises in a cold or warm water pool. The practice is a combination form of exercise which acts on two principles. One is gravitational force and the other is buoyancy. The latter has an exceptional ability to minimise weight bearing through joints whilst still providing resistance with exercise.
Cold water can also be used to stimulate and invigorate muscles and joints, stimulating the immune system and increasing the body’s internal activity. Warm water, on the other hand, can be used to calm and soothe the body. This has the opposite effect, slowing down activity. Alternating between the two may help heal injuries, reduce inflammation, improve circulation and speed up recovery time.
Hydrotherapy has been used to treat a range of physical issues and conditions, most notably arthritis, rheumatic issues, sore muscles and other ailments. The weightlessness, hydrostatic effects and massage-like feelings not only support natural healing processes, but can also soothe the body and induce a feeling a relaxation which treats stress, anxiety and tension.
Our hydrotherapy classes in Melbourne offers various others benefits, some of which include:
Whether you’re attempting to improve your walking technique, aerobic fitness levels and range of joint movement or enhance balance, strength and coordination, hydrotherapy can be highly beneficial for many individuals, especially post-musculoskeletal surgeries or with chronic pain.
