Why Aquatic Therapy?
Pediatric aquatic therapy is a great alternative to land therapy to help children in the following areas:
Range of motion/Flexibility
Aquatic therapy also helps relax muscles as pool water is maintained at a warm temperature around 88-90 degrees. Movement within and against warm water has a massaging effect on muscles, joints, and ligaments improving circulation and reducing inflammation pain.
Treatment sessions are one on one and are individually tailored to the child’s needs. Aquatic therapy may be beneficial for children diagnosed with/ but not limited to autism, cerebral palsy, chronic pain, neurological, sensory processing, and motor coordination disorders.
Also, If your child suffers from a chronic illness, needs to rehabilitate after an injury, or needs help with developing social and motor skills, pediatric aquatic therapy is a great option.
