Our Mission

Fortius Sport & Health is an integrated athlete development centre strengthened through philanthropy and focused on optimizing human performance for life.

Hydrotherapy

​​​Hydrotherapy helps you strengthen weak or weakened muscles, restore joint motion and muscle function after injury, manage arthritic pain, and support weight loss and overall wellness. We use our hydrotherapy centre – hot and cold plunge pools, and an underwater treadmill – for many conditions, including acute and post-operative conditions.

Treadmill sessions allow for earlier post-injury or post-surgery ambulation and provide a safe and effective rehabilitation and fitness environment - so you can get back on the playing field sooner or increase your day-to-day mobility. The buoyancy of water, combined with a treadmill, often allows us to have you performing exercises before you can do them on land, which speeds up your recovery time.

We offer a state-of-the-art Hydroworx™ 2000 Underwater Treadmill (8'x11'), along with hot and cold pools. The wet heat of Hydroworx ThermalPlunge pool helps relieve pain, improve circulation and promote relaxation, while the wet cold of PolarPlunge pool is effective in decreasing swelling, inflammation and pain after injury.

Use of our hydrotherapy area requires a referral from your therapist, or one of our Fortius practitioners. Once the referral is made, our hydrotherapy staff will review your condition and goals and work with your referring practitioner to create the best treatment program. The Hydroworx Treadmill can also be used to augment your training program; we will coordinate this with your existing training plan to optimize your training and recovery. 

Our Hydrotherapy services are often covered under extended health plans. Check with your provider for more details on the benefits available to you. We do not directly bill third parties; however, we will provide you with a receipt that can be submitted to your health plan for reimbursement.

Our Services Include:

Underwater Treadmill Training

Your time in our Hydroworx pool is supervised and specific training programs are worked out in consultation with your referring practitioner. We can provide excellent results for clients who are suffering from a wide range of injuries and conditions, including orthopaedic and post-surgical rehab, traumatic brain injury, chronic pain and arthritis.  15 mins - $35, 30 mins - $65, 45mins – $98, 60 mins - $130.
