Whipper Watson Pool Programs
Acute Pool Program
The Whipper Watson therapeutic pool is the only hospital-based therapeutic pool in York Region. Structured exercise classes and one-on-one sessions are conducted by the orthopaedic physiotherapists with hydrotherapy training five mornings a week for inpatients and outpatients with acute orthopaedic, arthritic and neurological conditions. Pool therapy is especially beneficial for patients who are too weak or have too much pain to exercise effectively out of the water.
Volunteer with the Pool Program
Sub-Acute Pool Program
The sub-acute pool program provides the opportunity for continued pool exercises following discharge from an acute physiotherapy program. The program is managed by a Pool Coordinator who supervises and volunteers who have been trained by the pool physiotherapists. Programs are offered afternoons, evenings and Saturday mornings.
