Hydrotherapy

Coastal Physiotherapy in Maroochydore, Sunshine Coast offers hydrotherapy classes at the Cotton Tree Aquatic Centre.

Hydrotherapy is performed in a shallow, heated pool (suitable summer and winter), and the buoyancy of the water encourages easier movement and ability to exercise.  Hydrotherapy is suitable for most conditions, and the exercise is tailored to your individual needs.

Benefits of hydrotherapy include:

  1. Reduction in pain
  2. Improved mobility
  3. Increased muscle strength
  4. Prevention of injury
  5. Improved balance and co-ordination
  6. Increased cardiovascular fitness
  7. Improved confidence and sense of well being

Hydrotherapy at Coastal Physiotherapy

Prior to commencing hydrotherapy an initial assessment is required in the clinic. This enables the Physiotherapist to determine your medical history and assess your strength and joint movement. With this information the Physiotherapist can provide you with the most appropriate exercises and trace your progress over time.

Hydrotherapy is performed in small groups under the guidance and supervision of one of our Physiotherapy team. Exercises are performed in shallow water so swimming ability is not important, although you must be confident in water. Exercises can be tailored to specific areas of the body or to improve general strength, function, fitness and balance.

Classes are offered at Cotton Tree Aquatic Centre every Wednesday from 2 – 2.45pm.
