Hydrotherapy involves supervised exercises in a heated pool. The temperature and buoyancy of the water can help reduce both muscle spasm and pain. This enables the individual to perform exercises that improve strength, flexibility and stability which may be more difficult when performed through weight-bearing exercises on dry land.
A key component of managing an injury is ensuring active involvement in rehabilitation and CHG ensures that active rehabilitation and work conditioning is a core component of our injury management strategies. CHG offers gym and hydrotherapy services from the Mile End clinic, which boasts a hydrotherapy pool and gymnasium facility. All services are provided under the direction and supervision of a team of experienced physiotherapists and are tailored to the need of the individual. Onsite shower, change rooms and parking are available.
CHG is able to provide supervised gym and hydrotherapy programs for patients under the care of external medical and allied health providers.
