Here’s 5 top benefits of Platinum Physio’s Hydrotherapy:

  1. We combine hands-on treatments and guided tailored exercises in the near weightless warm water environment to help you start your rehabilitation journey early and for more effective management of a whole range of chronic conditions and persistent pain.
  2. The safe, supported and near weightless environment of the warm water 34° pool allows your muscles to relax enhancing the management of your pain, injuries and rehabilitation. By allowing you to  move more freely and comfortably by unloading and safely exercising your body without stressing your joints or injuries, our guided Hydrotherapy helps reduce persistent pain while improving your mobility and functional capacity.
  3. Orthopaedic rehabilitation: There is great evidence supporting the effectiveness of Hydrotherapy in delaying joint surgery and improving your recovery after surgery. We work closely with your surgeon and medical team.
  4. Hydrotherapy is ideal for managing pain and stiffness, particularly back pain, hip pain, knee pain and shoulder pain; managing Arthritis and Fibromyalgia, Osteoporosis, Obesity, Persistent Pain, neurological conditions and other chronic and complex conditions which make it hard to move.
  5. Hydrotherapy offers the opportunity to safely build your strength, balance, and to improve your  endurance, cardiorespiratory and aerobic fitness and for plyometric retraining. Our expert Aquatic Physios will guide you to progress safely to rebuild your resilience – giving you more freedom and capacity and helping you get back to living the life you love!
