Hydrotherapy with The Geelong Neuro Centre

Hydrotherapy is an effective and safe therapy that can help improve the quality of life for those with neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, stroke, and spinal cord injuries.
  • When you’re in a warm pool of water, you may notice that you can move more easily than you can on land. That’s because the water can help decrease stiffness in your joints, relax your muscles, and make it easier to control your movements. All of these effects combined can help relieve pain and make it easier to do the activities you love.
  • Water can also be a great way to add resistance to your exercises. When you move your limbs through the water, you’ll feel a gentle resistance that can help you build strength in your muscles. This can be especially helpful if you’re dealing with muscle weakness or trying to recover after an injury.
  • Another benefit of water therapy is that it can help you stretch your muscles more easily. The buoyancy of the water can help support your body weight, making it easier to move through a range of motion without putting stress on your joints. This can be especially helpful if you’re dealing with tight muscles or limited mobility.
  • When you’re in the water, you can also practice your balance and walking in a safe and supportive environment. The water can help support your body weight, making it easier to maintain your balance and take steps without fear of falling.
  • Lastly, the buoyancy of the water can help reduce the amount of weight bearing on your body, which can be helpful if you’re dealing with pain or limited mobility.
