Aquatic Therapy

As the name suggest, Aquatic Therapy is an exercise based treatment that is performed in the water; typically in a pool.

For patients whose injury or chronic condition prevents full weight-bearing activity, the buoyancy of water and the gentle resistance it provides makes treatment possible when it might otherwise not be. In particular, Aquatic Therapy is very good for:

  • reducing pain & inflammation
  • increasing range of motion
  • improving strength & function
  • enhancing overall rehabilitation outcomes

Aquatic therapy can be particularly useful for patients with chronic conditions including:

  • arthritis
  • fibromyalgia
  • diabetes
  • osteoporosis
  • back pain
  • joint pain (ankles, knees and hips)

Aquatic therapy is also good for those recovering from a:

  • sports injury
  • motor vehicle accident
  • stroke or neurological incident
  • some other form of trauma

It’s also excellent for losing weight & increasing fitness and for many older patients to receive gentle treatment and/or to stay active!

While Aquatic Therapy is typically performed in a swimming pool, is can also be provided through an underwater treadmill. While many of our clinics provide Aquatic Therapy in a swimming pool, only our Leaside clinic currently has an underwater treadmill (the HydroWorx 200).

Our patients are the reason we're so passionate about what we do! Here's one of our patients at Physiomed Hamilton. This photo was sent to us by his mother, who comes in every week to watch this routine between her son and our physiotherapist. She's so proud to witness these moments of determination. Physiomed is honoured to be part of it. #transformationtuesday

At Physiomed, we've got your back! 😉

Winter is far from over, which means you'll probably be shoveling snow a few more times this season. Did you know a shovelful of snow can range anywhere from 22-66 lbs?

Here are some tips to protect your back:

✔️ Don't let the snow pile up
✔️ Do a 10-minute warm-up before shoveling
✔️ Pick a lightweight 'push shovel'
✔️ Push, don't throw the snow
