Hydrotherapy is a water-based form of therapy, used to treat various conditions.
Water has the unique ability to decrease the effects of gravity, making movement more comfortable. The warm water helps your muscles relax, reduces joint stress, and encourages healing. Hydrotherapy creates an accessible, welcoming environment for people looking to improve their health and fitness.
Hydrotherapy exercises are focused on slow, controlled movements rather than aerobic exercise. Regardless of age or fitness level, it's a great way to get moving and have fun.
At Adelaide Hydrotherapy, our pool is kept at a consistently warm 34ºC all year round. This is warmer than the usual swimming pool, providing the perfect environment for hydrotherapy.
Our team will make sure your hydrotherapy program is tailored to your needs. We will ensure that you feel comfortable with being in the water, adjust your program to best suit you and be with you one on one during the entire session.
Adelaide Hydrotherapy welcomes NDIS participants; we work with Plan Managed and Self Managed clients. We also work with Return to Work SA, Private Health Funds, GP Care Plans & the Department of Veterans Affairs.

How can Hydrotherapy help?
Being performed in
Like a heat pack to help with pain and stiffness, warm water has the added benefit of relieving pain and improving flexibility as you exercise!
Reducing the effect of gravity on your body
Move more freely and perform exercises in water that you can’t do on land. It is a great way to exercise weight-bearing joints such as your hips, knees and ankles, as well as reducing any stiffness, limited movement, and the compressive load on your lower back.
Using movement through the water creates resistance which works your muscles in a different way to greatly improve their strength.
Hydrotherapy has many benefits and is used to treat a wide range of conditions in the spinal, upper and lower body areas. It is helpful following surgery, particularly after joint replacements and back surgery. It has also proven to be extremely helpful in the management of arthritis.
