Aquatic Therapy at Children’s Therapy Corner is one-on-one treatment administered by a licensed trained therapist. Therapeutic activities performed in an aquatic environment provide excellent opportunities for children to develop their motor skills. The water provides resistance, helping to build strength in all planes of movement while also increasing proprioceptive input to increase body awareness.
The natural buoyancy of water provides a fun, gravity-assisted environment for your child to explore and practice movements and skills that he or she is not yet able to perform on land. Your child will attend aquatic treatment sessions in conjunction with regular land-based treatment to carryover functional gains.
