Aquatic Therapy is an excellent supplement to land-based physical and occupational therapy, providing one-on-one treatment sessions.
The water offers a gentle resistance, which increases strength and enhances sensory feedback and learning. In addition, the water supports muscles while children work on balance and posture. The therapists utilize aquatic and land-based techniques, including myofascial release, neuro-developmental treatment, sensory motor integration, and functional motor skills.
Rehabilitation, in an aquatic environment, provides patients a unique medium for neuromuscular reeducation and strengthening. Increased muscular strength occurs quicker as movements are performed against the resistance of the water.
David's Swim School offers a unique swim program designed to provide an educational and therapeutic environment for children with special needs. We continually train our instructors to work with special needs children. While our lessons may appear simplistic and fun are, in reality, carefully orchestrated and tailored to each child’s particular needs and abilities.
The water environment permits earlier detection of small neuromuscular movement and responses. The anti-gravity effect of water makes it easier to work with these movements to increase range of motion and strength.
Our Drowning Prevention Florida Foundation provides services to families with low income and special needs, giving swimming lessons and aquatic therapy.
Across Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach, we facilitate learning and rehabilitation in a safe, comfortable, and family environment. We establish and give valuable tips for the safety of families, many who wish to learn about drowning prevention and swimming therapy.
Our students develop and improve at a rapid pace, and you can observe their advances during the course.
All proceeds inside our facility go towards the Drowning Prevention Florida foundation.
