FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What Is Hydrotherapy treatment?

We define hydrotherapy treatment as the effective implementation of prescribed exercises in an aquatic environment heated specifically to 28 – 34 degrees celsius; restoring mobility and physical function to overcome your musculoskeletal injury.

Why do you need Hydrotherapy treatment?

Musculoskeletal injuries can be easily aggravated with simple weight bearing activities like standing or walking, due to the effect of gravity. So we reduce the risk of you aggravating your injury, by starting you in the pool where you can improve functional characteristics such as mobility, flexibility, stability and balance.

We safely prepare you to be physically active on land when it is medically appropriate to do so, as we incorporate the benefits of Exercise Physiology into all our Hydrotherapy treatment programs.

When is it appropriate for Hydrotherapy treatment?

If you have mobility issues that prevent you from moving freely without pain, then hydrotherapy is likely a treatment modality that you may benefit from.

We find that patients who participate in our hydrotherapy programs recover much more quickly and return to their normal lifestyle faster; if they come to us in the first 6-8 weeks after their injury. The longer you delay in getting started, the harder it is for you to make your full recovery.

If you are still having passive forms of treatment (such as physiotherapy, massage therapy and chiropractic treatment) after 6-8 weeks without significant improvement, then you should seriously reconsider your current rehabilitation treatment plan because it may not be working for your situation.

Do you run group programs?

No. When we work with our patients, we are extremely mindful that everyone has a situation that is unique to them; and this same rule applies to you. This is why we do not believe in group treatment programs as this is the same as offering a “cookie cutter” type “one-size fits all” treatment program. They simply are not tailored to work for everyone.

Do you treat patients outside of Mobile Service Areas listed?

The suburbs listed in the Mobile Service Areas on this page, is to act as a rough guide to outline the geographical areas that we service in the Sydney metropolitan area. Should your suburb not be listed there, but is nearby to one that is shown; there is a still good chance that we can still facilitate treatment to you in person. However it would be a good idea to contact us to confirm.

Additionally, those patients outside of our Mobile Service Areas can still access treatment via Telehealth.

Are you still delivering Hydrotherapy treatment during COVID-19?

Yes! Even though delivering hydrotherapy treatment in this current climate is challenging with the changing restrictions that have been put in place to manage the spread of COVD-19; we are still committed to assisting our patients where possible.

We promise to continue to be vigilant in our response to COVID-19 (see our COVID Safe plan here); and wish to remain innovative in the way that we continue to facilitate hydrotherapy treatment to our patients; (including offering Telehealth services to all patients where in-person treatment isn't possible).

Can I simple Refer a Patient to get started with Hydrotherapy?

Of course you can!

You can complete an online referral form here to help expediate the approval process with the insurer; or you can ask your GP write a referral letter to Fitco Health Technologies for hydrotherapy treatment.
