The Physio Movement Townsville offers Hydrotherapy services, also known as aquatic physiotherapy, at local pools across Townsville. These services are run by our qualified Physiotherapists and include 1-on-1 sessions.

What Is Hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy describes many different activities that are done in water, often referring to movement and exercise for rehabilitation in a warm pool. These activities have a therapeutic effect and are great for patients of all ages, whether you are post surgical or recovering from an injury/illness, you will find benefit from being in the pool!

Being in the pool can assist your body as the buoyancy of the pool reduces gravity on the body. This is great for reducing load and impact through painful joints such as the spine or knees. Our Physiotherapists incorporate their diagnostic skills, exercise knowledge and other treatment techniques to enhance the recovery and rehabilitation of our clients with a wide range of conditions and provide a unique environment to maintain health, well-being and fitness.
