HYDROTHERAPY FOR THE NDIS
The therapeutic benefits of hydrotherapy are well-documented. When combined with the expertise of an Exercise Physiologist, it can provide a range of positive outcomes. The buoyancy and warmth of the water can provide relief from pain and improve health status, as well as increase range of motion for many conditions such as fibromyalgia syndrome, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, and pre-and post-surgery rehabilitation.
Studies have shown that structured exercise programs in hydrotherapy can improve strength and overall fitness for those with arthritis, making it a safe and effective treatment option. Hydrotherapy is also considered a safe treatment option for back pain, as it can help achieve optimal mobility.
