Exercising regularly plays a crucial role in the process of healing, mental wellness and relief from pain. Gym rehabilitation in conjunction with hydrotherapy provides a more beneficial form of rehabilitation. The Y-Rehab program supports people with medical conditions in providing individuals exercise programs catered to their needs.
Hydrotherapy or pool therapy consists of an exercise program that is performed in the water. It is a highly beneficial form of rehabilitation that is useful for a variety of medical conditions and injuries. While submerged in warm water buoyancy assists in supporting the weight of the client. This decreases the amount of weight bearing which reduces the force of stress placed on the joints.
Pilates Reformer classes focus on improving your physical health and wellness including overall strength flexibility, co-ordination, balance and relief from pain associated with physical discomfort such as back pain.
