  “Get Moving” class

  Hip and Knee class

Targeted for individuals with acute or chronic lower limb injuries, including post-operative rehabilitation. The aim is to improve lower limb muscular strength and endurance to assist everyday tasks and progress to land based exercise management.

  Back class

Targeted for individuals with acute or chronic back pain, including post-operative rehabilitation. The aim is to improve core activation and strength, functional movement and whole body strength.

The warm water and buoyancy effect of being submerged in the water makes it easier to perform your exercises, even for people with very painful conditions. Hydrotherapy classes are particularly beneficial for people who are recovering post injury or surgery, those who suffer from Arthritis or general pain and stiffness, or those who are looking to improve their general strength/conditioning, health and wellbeing, and function.

The Benefits of Hydrotherapy include:

  • Improved circulation and decreased inflammation
  • Improved mobility, gait, balance and co-ordination
  • Improved strength and endurance
  • Increased joint range of motion and flexibility
  • Decreased pain and weight bearing on joints
  • Improved cardiovascular/cardiorespiratory fitness
  • Improved self-confidence, function and ability to move better

Everyone is welcome to attend the classes including:
  • Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA
  • Workers Compensation with prior approval and appropriate referral for your GP or Insurance Company
  • Private patients (may be subsidised upon appropriate referral from your GP or private health fund. Please enquire with your GP or health insurance provider)
