Physios at Pine Rivers Physio & Sports care can provide hydrotherapy programs. Hydrotherapy is a customised program of exercises and stretches done in a heated pool to improve strength, flexibility, balance and decrease pain. It is particularly useful for people who find weight bearing exercises too painful, have intense pain or are particularly stiff for example post fracture.
After an initial in rooms consult the physio will usually meet you at a local heated pool to construct the program, however we can write a program to do in your own pool if this is more convenient. Hydrotherapy consults are charged at a higher rate as they require a longer period of the physio’s time, however, can be claimed under extras health insurance if you have the appropriate cover. NDIS and work cover are direct billed.
