Exercise programs in the pool. One of our physiotherapists will demonstrate exercises whilst in the pool with you - preferably the Albany Creek Leisure Centre.
They will then provide you with a laminated written handout so you are able to take this with you when you visit the pool for your individual session.
We will come to your home to provide an accurate assessment and treatment program. The area covered is within a 20 minute driving distance form Albany Creek.
