Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is exercise done in water heated to a therapeutic temperature of approximately 34 degrees.

Bellbird Sports and Spinal conducts 1:1 and group hydrotherapy sessions at Aqualink Box Hill on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Who Can Benefit?

For people who struggle to exercise on land due to pain or weakness, hydrotherapy can offer a freedom of movement they never thought possible.

Hydrotherapy is especially helpful when you may have lost strength and condition due to an injury, post-surgery, a fall or chronic joint pain. People who have difficulty weight bearing, need the challenge of balance without the risk of fall or who have swelling in the limbs can all benefit from exercising in the hydro pool.

The qualities of the water include:

  • buoyancy
  • warmth
  • hydrostatic pressure

This environment provides a unique challenge and support for the body when exercising.

People who have chronic conditions that benefit from regular exercise or people who would like to get back to land based exercise after a set back can benefit from pool-based therapy.

Hydrotherapy can help you reach your health goals by:

  • Strengthening muscles
  • Improving flexibility
  • Relaxing the nervous system
  • Reducing swelling
  • Improving fitness
  • Improving balance
  • Increasing confidence

How do I start Hydrotherapy?

To join a hydrotherapy class, you will need an in rooms assessment consultation.

This will include an assessment and discussion about your condition as well as your rehabilitation aims and goals. We will design a tailored program for you which you will trial in another one on one session in the pool.

This is to ensure that the program is safe and challenging enough for you.

Once this has been completed, you can join group classes.
