Aquatic Therapy

image hereDynamic Kids Aqua Therapy is the only program in the Central Valley offering one-on-one aquatic physical therapy for children. A licensed physical therapist creates an individualized program to meet the diverse needs of children from infancy to adolescence. Therapeutic and functional exercises aided by the buoyancy and resistance of the water enable children to learn new movement patterns and become more independent in and out of the water.

The warm water enhances muscular relaxation, which increases circulation, reduces swelling and promotes healing. When immersed to shoulder level, 80% of the body's effective gravity dissipates due to the buoyancy of the water. In turn, buoyancy reduces compressive forces on the joints, allowing those with chronic pain to move and walk with greater ease and increase their range of motion. Aquatic therapy takes advantage of all the properties of water so children can strengthen muscles, learn new movement patterns and become more independent in and out of the water.

  • Strengthens all body systems (including pulmonary and cardiovascular)
  • Increases joint flexibility, muscle strength, and spatial awareness
  • Decreases hypersensitivity to touch
  • Provides an opportunity to practice higher levels of fine and gross motor skills
  • Slows down movement to accommodate equilibrium reactions and enhances muscular relaxation
  • Buoyancy assists posture in sitting and standing
