What is hydrotherapy?
Hydrotherapy at Hobson's Bay Physiotherapy involves the performance of a supervised physiotherapist-prescribed exercise program within a hydrotherapy pool (33-37 degrees). Hydro takes advantage of the properties of water in using buoyancy to counter the effect of gravity therefore making movement easier. Our therapists are highly skilled in using water and specialised equipment to tailor exercises aimed at improving strength, balance and endurance.
