Pediatric Rehabilitation

23 Nov 2020

           Pediatric aquatic therapy is a great alternative to land therapy to help children meet strength, range of motion/flexibility, balance, coordination, endurance, and walking goals. The buoyancy of the water helps reduce human body weight and allows children to move in ways they simply can’t on land.

           It’s been proven that walking in water provides more than 10 times the resistance of walking on land. Therefore, a child walking in the pool receives the benefit of both the support and resistance of the water. 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. As you can see, aquatic therapy has a lot of health benefits and is a great environment for therapy sessions.
