Hydrotherapy is physiotherapy treatment and exercise in water to improve joint movement, relieve pain and increase strength mobility and balance.
It works beautifully in immediate post-operative rehabilitation in shoulder, spine, knee and ankle surgery. Done in a pool heated to 37 degrees it is pain relieving and movement inducing. It is also great for acute injury and swelling management or as a long term treatment option for elderly patients or patients with severe disability.
We have the unique luxury in Grafton of having a purpose designed hydrotherapy facility at Grafton Lifestyle Centre, built on the funds raised by the good people of our community.
