Northeast Florida's Premier Pediatric
Aquatic Therapy Provider
What is Aquatic Physical Therapy?
Simply put, it is performing physical therapy (PT) in the water. Water allows children to move more freely by relieving weight from the body and providing constant resistance and support to improve stability. Aquatic PT is performed by a licensed physical therapist who specializes in treating movement dysfunction, so it cannot be performed by a traditional swim instructor.
