Our experienced Physiotherapist Kim Lobb offers Hydrotherapy treatments to injured workers in Greater Victoria.
Hydrotherapy is a low impact, safe and fun approach to an injured client’s rehabilitation. The weightlessness and buoyancy of water offers resistance for strengthening without weight bearing on an injury. Water based therapy can be used to treat a wide range of conditions and has several advantages over land based exercises. The goal of the WorksafeBC Hydrotherapy Program is to restore you to the level of function necessary for a safe return to work or activities of daily living. The program is specifically designed to help develop upper and lower body strength and conditioning; as well as core strength and stability, cardiovascular fitness and flexibility. Clients are taught how to work independently in order to continue with their exercise and fitness programs upon completion of the program.
WorksafeBC clients are automatically approved for Hydrotherapy visits with an approved Physiotherapy Claim. WorksafeBC is billed directly for this service, at no cost to the patient. Hydrotherapy sessions do not count against any approved Physiotherapy sessions.
