Pool Therapy

Pool therapy is perfect for anyone who has difficulty exercising on dry land.

Why Pool Therapy?

Pool or aquatic therapy is an approach to active rehabilitation that takes place in the water under the supervision of a kinesiologist. Water opposes the force of gravity opening up the opportunity to reap the benefits of active rehab to those with difficulties exercising on land. The ability to swim is not required to participate in aquatic therapy. Exercises are performed in chest deep water while standing or in deep water with a floatation belt.

At Symmetrix Exercise and Rehab we employ our background in kinesiology to apply a science-based approach to exercise rehab. We work independently, or alongside your doctor or physiotherapist to help you in overcoming your injuries and reclaim an active and mobile lifestyle. Our clients love getting stronger, reducing pain and getting back to the activities they enjoy, and we love helping them get there. Sessions take place at Hillcrest Community Centre.

We help clients recover from:

  • Foot, ankle, knee or hip injury.
  • Pre or post-operative joint replacement.
  • Lower back pain
  • Balance or coordination problems.
  • Osteoarthritis.
  • Shin splints and stress fractures from running.

Benefits of Pool Therapy:

  • Injury recovery.
  • Pain management.
  • Improved strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular capacity.
  • Increased energy and function in daily life.
  • Overall good health.

we’ve changed lives

We’ve been doing a combination of online and park workouts with Sioban for the last year. Her flexibility making sure we could workout regardless of when and where as well as dragging weights to the park so we could change up our routine has been greatly appreciated. I hate the Ickey shuffle, but still would recommend. 👍👍 PS if you find yourself doing a Cobra Kai…. you’re welcome!
