WHAT IS AQUA THERAPY?
Aqua Therapy is warm water rehabilitation which focuses on the prevention and treatment of injury or disease through physical means. Water can play an important role in injury rehabilitation. There is no pounding of the body in the water; all of the movements are cushioned by the water. The advantage is that following an injury or surgery, water exercises can begin sooner than traditional physical therapy, thereby cutting down recovery time.
Exercise in general helps to speed healing, and the best place to exercise is in a therapeutic warm water pool, to prevent or minimize the secondary damage that occurs after an injury. This damage includes stiffening, swelling and loss of muscle mass.
Our physiotherapist will work as your partner in the pool. Even if you are unable to walk or stand on land, you will still be able to exercise in the water, either at neck level or in deep water with a floatation device.
Our Physiotherapist has a detailed understanding of how the body works, and is specially educated to assess, improve movement and function.
We currently have 1 physiotherapists at Club Physio Plus that specializes in Aqua Therapy.
