Hydrotherapy services in Malvern

ME Physio is pleased to announce that our team will be offering hydrotherapy and aquatic physiotherapy services.  In conjunction with Stonnington City Council and the Aquatic Services Team,  our physiotherapy team will be managing and expanding the existing hydrotherapy services at Harold Holt Swim Centre.  ME Physio prides itself on empowering our patients through exercise and this exciting partnership will allow our team to provide another evidence-based clinical option for healthy long term solutions.

Hydrotherapy or aquatic physiotherapy utilises the warmth and buoyancy of the water to reduce muscle spasm, increase circulation and reduce pain.  It is particularly useful for patients whom may find that weight-bearing or land based exercises may aggravate or worsen their conditions.  By reducing the risk of aggravating or increasing pain, patients can then confidently improve strength, joint mobility, core strength and posture.

What are the benefits of hydrotherapy?

  • reduced muscular tension
  • increased muscular strength and endurance using the resistance of water
  • reduced swelling due to hydrostatic pressure,
  • improved balance and core stability

What conditions is hydrotherapy suitable for?

Aquatic Physiotherapy can be used be used to in conjunction with hands-on physiotherapy and can be beneficial for conditions including:

  • spinal or back pain
  • osteo-arthritis
  • ante-natal exercise
  • pre-habilitation prior to surgery to allow safe and pain-free strengthening and mobility
  • post-operative rehabilitation following joint replacements, fractures or tendon repairs
  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • balance or co-ordination problems

Our physiotherapists are able to pre-assess your suitability for aquatic physiotherapy and whether it may benefit your condition.  Our team is able to thoroughly assess your mobility and strength prior to entering the water.  This assessment allows us to provide you with a specific and individualised program tailored around your needs and goals.  This program can then be continued individually under our guidance or in a small group class conducted by one of our physiotherapists.  Health rebates can apply for patients with physiotherapy extras.

To book your initial hydrotherapy assessment or to learn more about how hydrotherapy could benefit your rehabilitation feel free to call us today on 9571 6888.

Back to school 🔙📚

Last week we were fortunate enough to head back to uni and refresh our anatomy knowledge at @latrobeuni in the anatomy labs. 

Thank you to the Latrobe School of Physiotherapy for inviting us! Last week our team celebrated another great year. 

Whilst Melbourne’s weather had its own plans, we were still determined to keep with the theme of ‘Italian Summer’. We let our hair down to master the art of mixology 🍸🍹followed by an Italian feast. Friday morning Run Club with the team. Practicing what we preach!

Staying stronger, healthier and happier. This time last week, our team was nervously completing their final preparations for @melbmara . 

Congratulations to our physiotherapists and ME community who ran on the day.

Dilen and Michael completed their first marathons. Abbey and Lizzie smashed out their first half. Last Sunday, our team headed down to see our own Matt Warren win a premiership in the VAFA Premier Men’s Competition. Last week our team dedicated a full day to professional development and team building. At ME Physio we pride ourselves on collaboration to put you at the centre of everything we do. 

Our team covered the latest treatments for back pain, financial well-being and finished off the day with salsa dancing. 

Many thanks to our guests including James Schomburgk from @the2ndvisitphysio , Financial Planners Tony Vikram & Cameron Bishop and the @salsafoundation At ME Physio, our focus is on helping you get stronger so that you can keep doing the things you love.

For Tony and Joan, healthier and stronger is being able to navigate the iconic Coast to Coast Walk in the UK! We recently had the pleasure of hosting Elise Bujor from Women’s & Men’s Health Physiotherapy to discuss women’s health issues across the lifespan. 

Our team pride themselves on staying up to date to ensure you’re able to stay healthier, happier and stronger. Huge milestones over the past few weeks with both Tom and Jude from @delasallefc doing their first bit of running in their rehab. 

Tom is on the return from an ankle dislocation whilst Jude is putting in the hard work following a knee reconstruction. Last week our team enjoyed some friendly rivalry at the footy. 

With finals around the corner, some of our team can now safely make holidays plans for September. We recently had the pleasure of hosting the podiatry team from @sespodiatry. 

Our physiotherapists Michael and Abbey presented on rehabilitation following Achilles surgical repair and ankle surgery. Last weekend some of our team got together to complete the 10 km run @runmelbourne. There was no finish line picture as some were keen to run another 15 km!

Whilst running wasn’t for some - brunch was well received by everyone.

You Deserve to Feel Good.
