Total Physiotherapy offers hydrotherapy sessions twice weekly at the Peterborough YMCA. Half hour classes are individually prescribed by our physiotherapists, and instructed by our kinesiologist. We offer individualized programs to patients with certain injuries or conditions.
Hydrotherapy is an excellent treatment choice for lower extremity problems, including post-operative conditions where patients are limited in their weight-bearing ability. Weight bearing progression, gait retraining, functional lower extremity strengthening, and range of motion can be promoted in water.
General activation of patients suffering from chronic pain, fibromyalgia, acute motor vehicle accidents, and complex regional pain disorders, all show benefit in an aquatic environment.
Treatment progression is provided by a physiotherapist, and closely monitored by a registered kinesiologist. Services are covered by most extended health benefit programs.
