Hydrotherapy Program Sydney

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 MetroRehab in Sydney, is our hydrotherapy pool. The unique properties of water, the decreased effect 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, or for those recovering after joint replacements, as well as for some neurological conditions.

Benefits

Tailor-made for You

The hydrotherapy pool is located in a comfortable air-conditioned environment and used for both individual and group therapy sessions which support our clients as part of their rehabilitation programs.

“I presented to Metro Rehab at the end of August after a fall. I sustained a small fracture in the cup of the hip which meant I needed rehab in order to walk again. I have cerebral palsy which posed extra challenges to rehabilitation.

The excellent staff and facilities at MetroRehab enabled me to be discharged after a month of intense daily physio and hydrotherapy coupled with frequent monitoring from the occupational therapist.

The two features I really liked were the way in which all the components of the MR operation worked together very collaboratively and the positive atmosphere that pervaded the whole facility. This is a place where the cleaners are appreciated and known by name!”
