Hydrotherapy

We are providing Hydrotherapy at the Ascot Aquatic Centre, 274 Lancaster Road, Ascot 4007. The hydrotherapy pool is a comfortable 34 degrees and has both steps with hand rails and hoist access. Our physiotherapists and exercise physiologists can assist you with hands on treatment in water.

Exercising in warm water with our university trained therapists combines the soothing weightless effects of the water with the movement facilitation, gentle stretching, mobilizing and light resistance exercises that the therapist can incorporate.

 
Positive effects of hydrotherapy include:

  • More freedom of movement, easier walking due to the support of the water
  • Improved circulation and decreased swelling in legs and arms
  • Reduced muscle spasm and tightness leading to more relaxation and stress reduction
