Joy Klassen and her family have recently moved from Canada to Hilton. Joy has just started up a new company called Continuum Hydrotherapy.
Joy Klassen was awarded her Honours degree after studying Human Kinetics for 4 years at the University of Western Ontario, Canada. She then worked in Canada for 9 years for a Rehab company assisting clients with their physical rehabilitation after injury, surgery, or chronic condition onset. During this time she became a Certified Hydrotherapist, and has been absolutely amazed by the results. She is very excited to bring her expertise and experience to South Africa.
Who will benefit from Hydrotherapy?
Everyone!!…but especially those with conditions related to: arthritic conditions, cardiovascular conditions, neurological conditions and post-op orthopaedic injuries. Joy also specializes in core strengthening for post pregnancy moms and people with back pain and weakness.
What will Hydrotherapy offer you?
Joy will develop an appropriate, individualized program for you in the water/pool utilizing the physical properties of the water. Buoyancy, hydrostatic pressure, resistance and analgesia are all physical properties of the water that facilitate a protective environment for therapy to be conducted in, thus providing optimum results. Such devises as: webbed gloves, flex paddles and noodles will be incorporated as tolerated. Hydrotherapy will assist in restoring joint range of motion (ROM), increasing muscle and cardiovascular strength and endurance. Hydrotherapy also improves flexibility, mobility and posture. Hydrotherapy can also decrease pain, reduce edema/inflammation and help to reduce muscle guarding/spasms.
