Home and Community Pools

Our physiotherapist will advise on suitable community pools close to your home suitable for you. The access and water temperature will need to be considered depending on your needs.

Transportation

Our physiotherapist will meet you at the pool. If transportation is an issue we can discuss community transport and other options.

Your Program

Your physiotherapist will use a range of activities in the water including:

  • Stretching exercises
  • Strengthening exercises
  • Deep water running
  • Aqua aerobics
  • Swimming

The heating effects of the water can be very effective in relaxing muscles, reducing spasticity and encouraging gravity free movement. Hydrotherapy is an important part of many of our rehabilitation programs
