Aquatic therapy is an alternative form of therapy that is indicated when land-based exercises are prohibitively challenging or when the sensory-rich environment of the pool is beneficial to a child. Exercise in water can be performed with lower requirements of strength, balance, and coordination, and the buoyant properties of water help make movement easier. Sensory input from the water can help to improve body awareness, balance, and relaxation.
Allied Therapy has physical, occupational, and speech therapists on staff who are experienced at providing aquatic therapy and designing land and water-based interventions to assist your child in meeting his or her goals.
Aquatic Therapy sessions currently take place at Veterans Park Community Center in Cabot, AR.
