Hydrotherapy
The Hydrotherapy Pool is located on the main corridor of the Treatment Centre.

Hydrotherapy is the physiotherapy treatment of conditions in a heated (34 – 36 C) purpose-built therapy pool.
 
The warmth of the water allows relaxation of muscles, aiding pain relief and joint movement. Water buoyancy can be used to assist or resist movements, allowing development of a graduated exercise program. Rehabilitation can also be commenced much earlier than on dry land as the body is more supported in water.
