Hydrotherapy Rehabilitation for Stroke Patients

Take exercise to new heights with hydrotherapy. This Day Program service uses the properties of water and thermal effects to boost strength and improve mobility.

What is Hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy helps to build strength and improve your range of movement and function. One of the many facilities we have at Royal Rehab in Sydney, is our hydrotherapy pool. The unique properties of water, the decreased effects of gravity and the effects of buoyancy, can assist with recovery after surgery and managing musculoskeletal and neurological conditions.

Who is hydrotherapy for?

Hydrotherapy is perfect for those with chronic conditions like arthritis, after joint replacements as well as for some neurological conditions, MS and stroke.

What are the benefits of hydrotherapy?

The many benefits of hydrotherapy include:

  • Increase in strength
  • Improvement in functionality
  • Pain relief
  • Improvement in mood and sleep
  • Stress relief
  • Weight loss

Tailor-made for you

The hydrotherapy pool is set in a comfortable air-conditioned environment and used for both individual and group therapy sessions to support our clients as part of their rehabilitation programs. You may begin with simple movements in the water, building up to water exercise classes to deep water running or fitness. With our highly trained team, you may be amazed at the progress you make.
