SSPC runs Hydrotherapy classes with a qualified Aquatic Physiotherapist 3 times a week out of the East Bentleigh Community Health Centre. Private Health Insurance Rebates apply. Your treating Physiotherapist or GP can refer you to this service. Hydrotherapy can help relieve pain, promote relaxation, mobilise joints, strengthen muscles, develop balance and coordination, and improve general fitness. The groups are run in small class sizes with participants all focussing on their own individualised program under the direction of the Aquatic Physiotherapist. Patients do not necessarily need to be able to swim to be able to benefit from hydrotherapy and hoist facilities are available if needed for patients to use to get in and out of the pool.
The Hydrotherapy pool operates at a temperature of approximately 34 C. The warmth increases circulation, reduces muscle spasm, and helps to relieve pain. Hydrotherapy is often a stepping stone for patients to progress onto gym or land based exercise programs, however can be full rehabilitation in itself for many sports, orthopaedic and degenerative problems.
