• Hydrotherapy for back pain
  • Hydrotherapy for shoulder and neck pain
  • Post surgical rehabilitation

Unfortunately due to increasing costs to hire a local hydrotherapy pool, Fountain Gate Physiotherapy will no longer be offering hydrotherapy sessions. We are actively looking for a new pool to use and hope to have sessions resuming shortly.

Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is therapeutic exercise in water. The pool is heated to at least 34 degrees celsius making it a very pleasant environment to exercise in, and has stair as well as hoist access.

Exercise in water takes advantage of water's properties: buoyancy, resistance, and heat. The benefits of hydrotherapy are:

- pain reduction through muscle relaxation
- pain reduction in the amount of weight-bearing on your joints
- increased balance from the benefits of buoyancy
- resistance when moving through water
- increased confidence to move because of pain reduction
- ability to increase muscle strength whilst progressing to a land based program


Conditions that hydrotherapy can be of benefit to but not limited to include:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Arthritic pains
  • Shoulder pain
  • Post surgical rehabilitation
  • Post joint replacement

If you are interested in attending a hydrotherapy class you will be required to attend the clinic for an assessment to ensure your suitability for hydrotherapy. Please contact us for an appointment.
