Hydrotherapy is physiotherapy lead exercise in a heated pool which is high beneficial for many children working on core strength, coordination and endurance in a fun and challenging environment.
Advantages of Hydrotherapy:
- The buoyancy effect of water can make some skills possible in the water which are not possible on land such as standing or walking.
- The warmth of the water can help reduce muscle tone and reduce pain allowing more freedom of movement and access to physical activity
- Children often find being in the water fun, so they will work harder without realising it
- Moving through the resistance of the water can help children who have low tone build strength and endurance
