Physiotherapy Programs

Aquatic Physiotherapy

Aquatic Physiotherapy (previously known as hydrotherapy) is physiotherapy in water. The warmth of the water can help reduce spasticity, the buoyancy of the water makes movement and balance easier, the density of the water can be used as resistance to build strength and improve function.Swimming Liam

 Would my child benefit?

Aquatic Physiotherapy involves specific exercises that help your child to develop strength, balance, co-ordination, core stability and more. It may involve some activities similar to ones done in swimming lessons but should not replace swimming lessons. Aquatic Physiotherapy works well when it complements a regular land-based program.  

Is my child eligible?

aquatic physiotherapy 2To attend Aquatic Physiotherapy, you will need a certificate from your GP, stating you are fit to attend. Being in the water puts increased pressure on your child’s body systems. It is important to get medical clearance, particularly if your child has any issues with their heart, lungs, blood pressure or kidneys. A land-based assessment by one of our physiotherapists is important in deciding if this program is right for your child.
