HYDROTHERAPY PROGRAM

Also known as Aquafit, Hydrotherapy is an aerobics or therapy session in the pool that can maintain and improve stamina, strength and suppleness as well as increase cardiovascular fitness. Unlike aerobics on land, Hydrotherapy is low-impact and the cushioning effect of the water protects joints in the spine, ankle, hip and knees. It is suitable for people of all ages as participants can work at a variety of levels by increasing effort and using resistive equipment. Offered in a warm pool temperature ranging from 84 to 92 degrees Fahrenheit, these temperatures will help the body relax and reach potential ranges of motion.

Hydrotherapy is an excellent water exercise to aid with the development of cardiovascular and respiratory fitness, while providing multiple benefits toward achieving greater overall health. It helps with muscle relaxation, improving joint motion and reducing pain. Our Hydrotherapy pool offers superior water current technology and hydromassage systems for our fitness and rehabilitation programs.

WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR FIRST VISIT

Your first visit will begin with a physiotherapist. We take the time to take a detailed medical history and perform a thorough physical examination. During this assessment the physiotherapist will ask questions about your symptoms, previous medical history and other relevant health information. You can tell us about any unique needs you have and any concerns you have too. The physiotherapist will perform a physical exam related to your symptoms and may ask you to perform certain movements and exercises. On the basis of this we will find the best approach to treat your condition and devise a personalized treatment and care plan.
