Aquatic Therapy

What is Aquatic Physical Therapy?

Aquatic physical therapy is physical therapy in the pool instead of in the clinic. It consists of working on the same goals the child has in a clinic environment but in the water! The water assists with movement by eliminating gravity and unweighting the joints to allow more freedom of movement.

Who Will Benefit From Aquatic Physical Therapy?

Most children can benefit from aquatic physical therapy. The water assists with their body weight so they can work on skills they are unable to do on land. The diagnoses most commonly seen range from Autism Spectrum Disorders to Cerebral Palsy to Coordination Disorders to generalized weakness.
