Hydrotherapy is an exercise regime whereby therapeutic exercises are conducted in the water and can be very effective in the management of many conditions and pain.
It is important to note that patients do not need to be able to swim in order to benefit from hydrotherapy. Hydrotherapy may be used alone or in conjunction with other rehabilitation programs and is often a stepping stone for patients to progress onto gym or land based exercise programs.
We are pleased to offer the following Hydrotherapy Classes:
MondayHydrotherapy1:30pm - 2:20pmSTARplex Swim Centre Gawler
ThursdayHydrotherapy2pm - 2:50pmSTARplex Swim Centre Gawler
The Physio-Wise main class timetable lists all our different classes, times and locations.
Currently our hydrotherapy sessions are undertaken at the STARplex Swim Centre at Evanston Park (please refer to timetable sessions above). We are fortunate to have an area designated solely for those involved in the hydrotherapy program, which enables our patients to concentrate on their rehabilitation without interruption from other programs.
In conjunction with the regulations of the STARplex facility, it is important that patients do not enter the pool prior to the scheduled opening time, as there are no lifeguards to monitor the pool before 1:30pm. It is also asked that appropriate bathing attire be worn in order to maintain a high level of water quality.
Initial Hydrotherapy session
When attending your initial hydrotherapy session, it is asked that you wait on the seats available by the side of the pool until our physiotherapist arrives. Your Physio-Wise instructor will design a program catering for your specific injury, and continually monitor and progress your program as required over your future sessions.
Payment & Booking
Physio-Wise include the STARplex pool fees into our billing fee, so please advise the reception staff at the STARplex facility that you will be partaking in hydrotherapy with Physio-Wise, and walk through to the pool.
In order to ensure that we have your appropriate clinical notes, it is asked that you book in to each hydrotherapy class that you wish to attend. This can be done by ringing the Gawler Physio-Wise clinic on (08) 8522 6611 or scheduling your hydrotherapy sessions when attending the clinic.
