We are very fortunate to have 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 hydrotherapy classes (also called aqua physiotherapy), twice a week on Monday and Friday, from 4.00 – 5.00 pm at the Bay of Isles Recreation Centre on Black Street.
This type of therapy is ideal for many clients like;
- pre-surgery workup (physical preparation 8-12 weeks before surgery)
- post surgery early recovery (total knee or hip replacement), rotator cuff repair, ACL reconstruction
- multiple sites of trauma (car accident)
or 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.
Hydrotherapy with a physiotherapist is covered by ancillary private health insurance. Contact your private health fund to confirm all details.
