If exercise is the greatest drug known to human kind, hydrotherapy must be the greatest therapy.

As the name suggests, hydrotherapy is therapy in water. In other words, it involves specific techniques, exercises and training that enhance physical recovery and performance.. As water provides buoyancy but also resistance, hydrotherapy takes the load off painful joints whist placing resistance on to muscles.

Hydrotherapy is therefore the ideal treatment modality for arthritis, chronic back pain, neck pain, post-operative rehabilitation, muscle strains, joint sprains, joint replacement surgery and in fact almost every physical problem.

Hydrotherapy is the ultimate compliment for “hands on” therapy and a land-based rehabilitation program such as clinical pilates and is another tool that can help to accelerate and optimize your recovery.

To get maximum benefits from hydrotherapy, it is important that you perform your hydrotherapy program in a specifically designed hydrotherapy pool. There are few specific hydrotherapy pools in Melbourne and even fewer in Bayside, however, recently Bodywise Health was given access to use the Bayside Hydrotherapy Pool at Elanora located in Hampton / Brighton. This hydrotherapy pool in Bayside Hampton and Brighton also serves the wider Bayside areas of Elwood, Elsternwick, Sandringham, Highett, Cheltenham, Black Rock and Beaumaris.

Like Melbourne Hydrotherapy Centre or Melbourne Hydrotherapy, Bodywise Health is now able to offer you the benefits of enhanced pain relief, muscle strengthening, joint mobility, flexibility, balance, control, coordination and function that is uniquely delivered by advanced hydrotherapy programs.

With qualified, experienced, hydrotherapy physiotherapists guiding you, you can rest assured that you are in good hands and that you will achieve the best possible health care results in the safest most empowering environment.

Bodywise Health may also be found by googling Hydrotherapy Pool Melbourne, Hydrotherapy Pool Bayside, Hydrotherapy Pool Hampton, Hydrotherapy Pool Brighton, Hydrotherapy Pool Highett, Hydrotherapy Pool Sandringham and Hydrotherapy Pool Cheltenham.

If you want to take your health to the next level or accelerate and optimize your recovery, hydrotherapy is probably one of the best treatment modalities that you could undertake.
