Aquatic Physiotherapy or Hydrotherapy is physiotherapy in a pool environment. We use the properties of the water and a variety of treatment approaches (including manual therapy and exercise) to address a wide range of conditions and therapeutic goals. The buoyancy in the pool can be used to assist or resist movement, which is not possible out of the water. The pool we use is heated to about 32 degrees to help warm up your muscles and facilitate your body’s movement.

About PhysiEx Hydrotherapy

The Physiotherapist or Exercise Physiologist will prescribe and monitor a program of specific exercises or techniques to be performed in an individual session. Hydrotherapy can increase muscle tone, range of motion and cardiovascular fitness. This may involve equipment such as pool noodles and weights.


We use the facilities at Caboolture Pool and Fitness Centre. If you have been referred to aquatic physiotherapy by one of our therapists, please see staff at front desk.
