Who benefits the most?
Hydrotherapy is great for children who are aiming to build strength, increase flexibility, manage pain, and/or improve endurance.
Buoyancy allows kids to practice their mobility and skills with more independence. For example, some kids cannot walk on land by themselves, but they can in water! Warm water also helps kids to stretch their muscles and manage discomfort during exercise to make exercising easier.
What to Expect
Ask your physiotherapist how hydrotherapy can support your child's development.
