Hydrotherapy (Aquatic Physiotherapy)

Experience the therapeutic advantages of hydrotherapy (aquatic physiotherapy) at Lake Gwelup Physiotherapy. Hydrotherapy combines the benefits of reduced joint loading from the buoyancy of water, relaxation properties of warm water, and targeted exercise therapy to facilitate rehabilitation.

Whether you're dealing with pain, recovering from an injury, or have recently undergone surgery requiring graduated weight-bearing, hydrotherapy provides an ideal environment to initiate your exercise regimen. The buoyancy of water alleviates strain on painful joints, allowing for more efficient muscle usage. Additionally, hydrotherapy aids in balance improvement for falls prevention, as balance challenges can be addressed without the risk of falling. Floats, noodles and kickboards can be used effectively to gradually increase resistance and improve muscle strength.

At Lake Gwelup Physiotherapy, we offer hydrotherapy services to a diverse range of clients, including private, worker's compensation, motor vehicle, DVA (Department of Veteran Affairs), EPC (Enhanced Primary Care), and self and plan-managed NDIS participants. Our hydrotherapy sessions are conducted in a heated pool under the supervision of experienced physiotherapists trained in water-based exercise prescription. The physiotherapist is always in the water with patients, guiding them through their program.

Prior to commencing hydrotherapy, an individual in-clinic assessment is conducted to evaluate suitability and specific needs, ensuring a personalised program. We offer both group classes and individual sessions to cater to varying preferences and requirements.

Hydrotherapy Class Schedule:

  • When: Monday and Thursday, 12:45-1:45pm
  • Where: Kirby Swim Karrinyup, 707 North Beach Road, Gwelup WA 6018

Please note that the pool is closed on public holidays, and availability may be limited during school holidays.
