Hydrotherapy is a very versatile form of treatment that can be tailored to your needs. You can start hydrotherapy in the early stage of your recovery or later down the track to help manage your condition and maintain your fitness.

Hampton Park Physio provides hydrotherapy services by appointment. Each person has an individualised hydrotherapy program designed by our physiotherapist. Therefore, prior to hydrotherapy class, you will need to be assessed by one of our physiotherapists to ensure that the exercise program is suitable for your needs to achieve your goals in recovery.
