Hydrotherapy is special exercises which are performed in warm water at 34° C. It is enjoyable and especially helps people with arthritis because the joints can exercise while the weight of the limbs are supported by water.
Soaking in warm water is one of the oldest forms of alternative therapy, and there’s good reason why this practice has stood the test of time. Research has shown hydrotherapy works wonders for all kinds of musculoskeletal conditions, including arthritis and chronic pain conditions.
The purpose-built pool and private facilities at our Salisbury Plain clinic give a sense of security, and many long term friendships have been formed. The relaxed atmosphere allows participants social well being particularly for those who live alone.
You do not have to worry if you are unable to swim as the pool is shallow so you can exercise well within your depth. There is always an assistant by the side of the pool.
Prior to your first hydrotherapy class, you will need a consultation with a physiotherapist who will ask you questions about your health and assess any problems.
Our 30 minute hydrotherapy classes run regularly throughout the week, and you can book by calling our clinic on 8250 7557 or alternatively book online.
The cost of our hydrotherapy and physiotherapy services will depend on your level of private health cover, please ask our receptionist for more information.
