Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy or physical therapy attempts to treat what limits a person's ability to move and do things in their daily life, to improve their independence and quality of life.

To maintain our mobility level, we need to stay active in whatever way we can enjoy and have access to.

Benefits of Physiotherapy

  • The warm pool provides opportunities to move and have fun in a weightless environment.
  • The climbing wall develops different physical skills without feeling it is exercise.
  • The trampoline allows you to experience bounce and rhythm and is demanding on balance and keeping your body upright.
  • Frame Running or Race Running is a fantastic opportunity to experience speed for all those who struggle with walking. The frame holds you up safely so that you can focus on stepping, walking and running.
  • Boccia is a real team game requiring precision and technique, whether you are in a seated or standing position.
  • For children whose development has been delayed for any reason it is still important to be able to explore movement independently, to feel what gravity does to you, to become aware of different textures, structures, height and speed. Climbing up and down, swishing down a tunnel slide, swinging and twisting in the air – all these experiences help us to integrate sensations and develop our physical, emotional and social skills.
