Common Questions About Pediatric Aqua Therapy
How does aqua therapy work?
A qualified therapist will get to know your child and understand his or her needs. From there, the therapist will design a custom therapy plan that includes water exercises. The therapist will join your child in a heated pool and help him or her perform the exercises.
Visiting the pool is a treat for most children. As a result, your son or daughter will be excited about going to therapy!
Is aqua therapy safe?
Because water is buoyant, it will allow your child to perform exercises without worrying about falling or getting injured.
Additionally, your child will be supervised throughout the entire session by a certified therapist to ensure your child’s safety.
