What is Hydrotherapy?
Hydrotherapy is a specific physiotherapist led treatment and exercise class in a heated pool.
The heat encouraged stiff joints and tight muscles to relax while the buoyancy of the water takes the load off your joints, therefore allowing you to exercise without pain.
The class includes upper and lower body strengthening, cardiovascular exercise, and balance training.
There are generally no more than 10 people per class. This ensures the physiotherapist can focus on the needs of each individual.
How do I book into a class?
An initial assessment is required to ensure we can tailor a programme to best suit your individual needs. A doctors referral is not compulsory but we recommend you get your doctor’s clearance to begin activity, particularly if you are recovering from a specific injury.
Where are the classes located?
The classes are held at Caloundra Aquatic Lifestyle Centre, Arthur Street, Caloundra.
Classes are on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 12.30-1.30pm.
See you there!
