Our rooms in Rooty Hill have access to a wonderful on-site hydrotherapy pool. Access is easy with hoist facilities, multiple ramps and stairs.
Other public pools used for our hydrotherapy sessions include Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre, Leichhardt Aquatic Centre and Ashfield Aquatic Centre.
Aquatic therapy is a form of physiotherapy which makes use of the natural buoyancy, heat and resistance of water to help bring about a number of therapeutic effects. Aquatic therapy can be used to treat all the main areas of physiotherapy including neurological, musculoskeletal and respiratory conditions.
Aquatic therapy is particularly helpful for children with reduced mobility, issues with weight bearing exercise and balance problems.
The water temperature in the pool is approximately 33–36ºC.
The warm water aids movement and flexibility, relaxes muscle spasm, increases range of motion and offers gentle resistance.
This can be a great way to provide a fun and engaging environment to help stimulate your child’s progress.
Your child does not need to be able to swim and the sessions are one on one ensuring your child’s safety at all times.
