Houston Pediatric Physical Therapy Provider Offers Aquatic Therapy This Summer

"Summer is finally here and everyone is excited to head to the nearest beaches and pools to splash away the heat. Your local Houston pediatric physical therapy provider, MedCare Pediatric Group, LP, may also help your child stay cool and have fun during therapy sessions this summer. Aquatic Therapy takes advantage of water’s buoyancy properties to make movement better and easier for our patients. This would make sitting, standing, walking, and even jumping more doable than on land. Our pools have powerful jets that make waves to help patients strengthen their muscles by moving against the water force. This pressure against the body may also help to reduce swelling and improve blood flow."
