Post-exercise recovery

Using water-based exercise to aid recovery after strenuous exercise or activity has long been the secret weapon of elite athletes eager to optimise performance or recover from injury.  But you don’t need to be a professional rugby player to benefit! Whether it was a big game, some strenuous yard work, the local fun-run or your normal exercise regime that has got you feeling sore, the wonders of warm water will have you back on the field and the dance floor in no time!


The benefits of aquatic exercise in post-game or exercise recovery include:

  • Warm water to soothe muscles, aid movement and enhance flexibility
  • Buoyancy, which decreases load on aching muscles and joints – allowing you to get movement back without the pain!
  • Increased circulation through all extremities, hard-to-reach places and sore spots
  • The ability to very specifically challenge muscle groups in incremental doses, allowing you to control how much and for how long.

Recovery at Hydrotherapy Brisbane

We welcome anyone who needs the benefits of warm water rehabilitation at our facility!

♦ Individuals:

Before your first solo session in the pool, we will need to assess your abilities and prescribe a suitable program for you. Depending on your injury or problem, this may be as simple as a quick session with an appropriately trained staff member, or a longer session to fully assess your needs. If appropriate, once you have a program, you can use the pool by yourself within specified hours. A review time will be recommended to ensure your program progresses according to your needs.

If you have your own physiotherapist or other appropriately trained health professional they can attend the centre with you to set up your program (conditions apply).

♦ Teams:

We love to have entire sporting teams in during key moments in their season. We’ve worked with some of the biggest names in professional sport and performance to aid in maximising their performance and recovery.

If you are part of a sporting team and you’d like to get the whole group into the water for a personalised recovery program run by an expert professional tailored EXACTLY to your team’s needs, please contact us! We have excellent package rates available and would love to help you get that premiership!
