Information for Doctors and Surgeons

For aquatic physiotherapy (low back pain, post-surgical rehab, joint sprains etc) please refer first to a physiotherapist of your choice or the patient’s choice. The physiotherapist will then identify the major functional, strength, flexibility or motor control issues and then refer to us for Aquatic Physiotherapy (only for independent programs). A land based home exercise program in conjunction with an aquatic program will achieve the best results. If the patient needs ongoing supervised aquatic physiotherapy then please consider a program at your local Community Rehab or Community Health centre or privately – see www.physiotherapy.asn.au (look under Find-A-Physio)

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me on 0401 328 183
