Aquatic Therapy Services

Aquatic Therapy Services

Aquatic Therapy is physical, occupational, or speech therapy performed in a pool setting. The water is a powerful therapy tool which helps children increase strength and promote relaxation, which can improve your child's flexibility and muscle tone. Aquatic therapy also provides regulating sensory input. The buoyancy of the water assists with weight bearing, allowing children to walk and move their bodies through the water when they may have difficulty doing so on land. The water provides a safe, comfortable, and therapeutic environment. Children with neurological, orthopedic, or sensory problems are often excellent candidates for aquatic therapy. Most of all, the pool is fun!

Additional benefits may include:

Conditions that may benefit include:

Several Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, and Speech-Language Pathologists provide aquatic therapy at an offsite pool. Our current pool setting offers both a warm, shallow pool and a cooler, deeper lap pool.

Sessions are tailored to the needs of each child using toys, flotation devices, weights, and other activities and equipment. Aquatic therapy can be beneficial for all children unless prohibited by certain medical conditions or other limiting factors.
