Temporarily on hold due to Covid-19 restrictions.

At Citadel Physiotherapy in Halifax, we offer pool therapy for those who are recovering from injuries. Water Therapy consists of a variety of exercises that are done in a pool to help people dealing with musculoskeletal injuries, chronic pain, and pre/post-surgical procedures.

Pool water therapy is an excellent method of treatment for people who have undergone surgery and need to begin a specialized exercise program that follows their surgeon’s specific protocol.

Water counteracts gravity and helps to support a person’s body weight in a controlled fashion as the person is immersed. This can aid in the development of improved balance and strength. So, for people unable to bear weight on land, they can in water. Sounds convincing? Find out more about our pool therapy sessions in Dartmouth and Halifax. Contact us today.

With Pool Therapy, You Can:

  • Strengthen and condition muscles

  • Improve flexibility/mobility

  • Reduce pain

  • Reduce the risk of future injuries

  • Treatment of osteoarthritis

  • Increase joint movement

  • Relaxation of tight muscles

  • Decreases stress on muscles and joints

  • Begin rehab exercises sooner than on land

The buoyancy of the water allows individuals with a limited range of motion to gain extra range and the ability to move freely underwater versus on land. The water also provides resistance by means of gentle friction, allowing the strengthening and conditioning of an injury while reducing the risk of further injury due to the loss of balance.

After any type of surgery, maintaining mobility is a top priority. Stiffness and loss of flexibility are a big concern for post-surgical patients. With pool therapy, people are able to begin rehab exercises much sooner than on land.
