NDIS Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy and hydrotherapy for better health

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funds for services that improve the health of Australians living with a permanent and significant disability. Physiotherapy is one of the health services covered by the scheme, and Campbelltown Physiotherapy is proud to be a registered NDIS provider.

NDIS and Hydrotherapy

All our therapists are trained to provide NDIS physiotherapy services, in accordance with your individual NDIS plan. Hydrotherapy is a form of therapeutic exercise conducted in a heated pool, under instruction from a qualified Physiotherapist or Exercise Physiologist.

It uses hot water and buoyancy to help relax the muscles and minimise joint compression, enabling mobility and strengthening exercises against the resistance of water. Our Exercise Physiologist is trained to design and implement safe, effective hydrotherapy programs for people with all disabilities.

 

Who benefits from hydrotherapy?

Hydrotherapy can be extremely beneficial for people with disabilities. The warmth and buoyancy of our hydro pool helps improve circulation, flexibility, decrease swelling and provide a comfortable environment for people to be physically active.

We treat people of all ages, from babies to the elderly, with equipment available for each life stage and skill level.

People with neurological conditions benefit from hydrotherapy with us. Our facilities allow anybody to access the water  with the use of ramp entry, wheelchair or hoist. We also have floating devices that keep people unable to stand supine on top of the water, to ensure safety while our therapist assists in exercises or stretches.

 

Hydrotherapy is beneficial for many conditions, including::

  • Stroke
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Brain Injury
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Muscular Dystrophy

Positive outcomes for hydrotherapy patients

At Campbelltown Hydrotherapy, we treat patients who have diverse, wide-ranging circumstances.

  • A 3 year old who has suffered from Muscular Dystrophy since birth is unable to bear weight on land, but can stand and walk independently in water.
  • The child attends bi-weekly sessions to strengthen their lower body and improve core stability through a range of exercises using various equipment
  • We’ve observed significant improvements in both functional ability and lessening of contractures.

We also have clients with brain brain injury that has left them unable to move or control certain areas of their body. Hydrotherapy sessions focus on relaxation and enjoyment, with a focus on passive range of motion (PROM) and isometric contractions.
