Pool Program (Hydrotherapy)
Active Living Physiotherapy offers a Kinesiologist-led small group hydrotherapy program for clients with limited mobility and multiple chronic conditions. Pool classes include individualized take-home exercise programs and take place at the Comfort Inn & Suites, 1351 Shoppers Row, Campbell River.
Hydrotherapy is beneficial for people with:
- Weight bearing restrictions – the buoyancy of the water helps to unload joints and can improve mobility without weight bearing. Clients who have sustained a fracture benefit from hydrotherapy while the bone is still healing. Clients with arthritis (where weight bearing is often painful) also benefit from water exercise.
- Reduced strength and balance – the viscosity of the water can help with gentle resistance and help improve balance and strength in a safe setting
- Taught by Robyn Smalley, kinesiologist
