Through activities performed in the water, trained therapists can help an individual apply what they learn in the water to real-life situations they may experience every day. These activities can also strengthen the individual’s body while also working to improve things such as their motor and social skills.
Swim therapy does what traditional therapy typically can’t accomplish: fun and motivation. By making learning fun, someone with unique needs will look forward to their therapy sessions and want to improve, because of the fun rewards. They also have the opportunity to partake in group activities which can create some healthy competition while exercising with social skills.
Regardless of the need, water has been shown to be one of the best environments for body rehabilitation through the weightlessness and soothing effect on the body. Water can decrease stress, reduce muscle spasms, and even encourage better focus.
Swim therapy is one way to enhance a an individual’s quality of life. It’s important to be interested in recreation and enjoy leisure time.
