We offer hydrotherapy as part of our extensive rehabilitation service. Our hydrotherapy sessions involve performing specific exercises and stretches in a body of water. We consider hydrotherapy to be an important part of the rehabilitation process for patients motivated to improve a variety of functional activities and returning to work or sport.


The warm water in the hydrotherapy pool encourages muscle relaxation and helps to relieve pain, while the buoyancy can be used to either assist or resist certain movements. Exercising in water also minimises the compression forces of gravity on our bodies and limbs, therefore allowing us to perform exercises that would otherwise be harder on land. In many cases, this allows us to commence rehabilitation earlier, particularly in the acute post-operative management phase.


All patients are required to undertake an initial land-based assessment prior to commencing their hydrotherapy program. 


Patients with the following conditions may benefit from hydrotherapy:

  • Joint replacements – Shoulder, Hip, Knee

  • Post Reconstructive Surgery – Shoulder, Knee, Hip, Ankle

  • Traumatic injuries

  • Chronic pain/illness – Introduction of safe Exercise Environment

  • Vehicle accidents – Evidence-Based approach to Management

  • Work injuries – Early restoration to functional movement

  • Acute Sporting Injuries – Safe return to load management and recovery

  • General de-conditioning – Establish an effective level of baseline output
