Hydrotherapy is a treatment program supervised by physiotherapists in a warm water pool (approximately 33-37 degrees).
Why do hydrotherapy?
The exercises that are performed place minimal stress and cause less joint inflammation making it easy for unobstructed painless movement of the body.
The buoyancy effect of water helps support the weight of the body which causes less loading and jarring through the joints and bones; very beneficial for solving problems including arthritis, obesity, healing fractures, surgical conditions, fibromyalgia, pain and muscle wasting. The pressure across the body creates resistance which improves strength.
The exercises that are performed cannot be done out on land. Hydrotherapy is a particularly effective and a comfortable way for patients to rehabilitate.
Noosa Sports and Spinal Physiotherapy is the only private practice allocated to run hydrotherapy classes at the Noosa Hospital Hydrotherapy Centre.
How to join the classes
We assess your problem(s) at the practice before you can join a class so that your exercises can be individually tailored to your needs. You will need to make an appointment at the practice to have a full assessment.
Our physiotherapist will then prepare a suitable program for you to ensure quality.
At the conclusion of the first assessment, our staff will provide further clear instructions re the class times and directions for the hydrotherapy classes.
The service is claimable with private health insurance, workers compensation, DVA and motor vehicle accident insurance.
