Pool Physiotherapy

Aquatic therapy is physiotherapy that takes place in a pool or other aquatic environment under the supervision of our trained healthcare professionals. Aquatic therapy is also known as water therapy, aquatic rehabilitation, aqua therapy, pool therapy, therapeutic aquatic exercise or hydrotherapy.

Aquatic therapy continues to grow in popularity as a safe complement or alternative to traditional land-based therapy that is suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels. The soothing properties of water appeal to those in search of treatment that can heal the body while improving rehabilitation timeframes, fitness levels or reducing overall stress levels.

The biggest benefit is those who can not suitably completed a land/clinic based exercise program due to injury and disability can comfortably and safely do so in the water.

Compared to other forms of physical therapy, aquatic therapy results in a higher client compliance rate and less pain throughout the recovery process. Opportunities to significantly minimize the pain a client experiences should be taken seriously because with less pain, a client can enjoy a higher quality of life.

Another important advantage of aquatic therapy is that it can often begin before land-based therapy. For athletes looking to get back into competition, or busy professionals who want to recover from surgery as quickly as possible, this makes a water-based program the natural choice.

Benefits

  • Warm water provides a relaxing and soothing environment for aching joints and muscles
  • Water’s natural resistance can be used for muscle strengthening 
  • Buoyancy allows for flotation and reduces the effects of gravity on aching joints, like your back of knees
  • Hydrostatic pressure supports the client, allowing people with balance deficits to perform exercises without a fear of falling
  • The respiratory muscles are forced to work harder in the water, allowing for a natural strengthening that benefits the client long after the therapy session has ended
  • Good for all ages and you don't need to know how to swim!

Having come in with a hairline fracture in his left wrist, my son underwent physiotherapy. The staff is very friendly and professional. They did not waste time while still maintaining a thorough preliminary evaluation. With continued and consistent appointments along with the at home exercises my son's strength increased by 10 lbs within a mere 5 sessions. Direct billing for benefits made it very convenient. Highly recommended.

I have had a great experience with Koonar Physiotherapy!! Early October I started treatment for dual herniated discs in my lower back. Jordan, Anna and Jon have been phenomenal in dealing with my injuries and slowly getting me back to 100%. Casey and Jessica at the front desk are sweethearts and always willing to try to accommodate my schedule(work, kids, etc.) I cant thank the whole staff enough for making me whole again!!!

Koonar physiotherapy is excellent!! I have been a patient there for over a year after a serious motor vehicle accident injury I endured. The Physiotherapists conducted a thorough examination of all my injuries and explained my issues in a clear yet comprehensive way, leaving me reassured. After following all the amazing advice, my pain is nearly gone and I am feeling incredible. The staff is super and is always very friendly. I thoroughly recommend Koonar physiotherapy.

I have never been cared for from any physiotherapy clinic in the same way and treated like a human being and felt like family caring as it is with Koonar Physo. The staff are extremely friendly and very knowledgable and always there to help. The owner Mike Koonar is always there to assist, his positive uplifting attitude is extremely helpful when you feel your worst but he is there to push you when you can do it. I will never go to any other physiotherapy represented places because of the treatment the opportunities for different types of treatment including Hydro therapy physiotherapy acupuncture and more. Mike and his team have worked together to put me back together so that I can function to my highest level.
