Our therapists use principles and properties of the water and specially designed aquatic activities to help children with motor difficulties achieve functional movements. We have also had great success introducing the benefits of aquatic therapy to individuals with not just physical, but also sensory and developmental issues. Water provides a fun and motivating environment for therapy. Staff utilize buoyancy, resistance of movement, and hydrostatic pressure. These principles of water are used to enhance strength, postural control, range of motion, motor planning, breath control, and weight bearing.
