Hydrotherapy for children


One of the childcare services offered by the Center for Child Development and Early Care (CDIAP del Gironès) is physiotherapy for children.

In this area of physiotherapy, the work carried out in the psychomotor classroom is combined with that developed in the aquatic environment. Both the center of Salt and the center of Girona have a swimming pool, the dimensions of which allow two adults and a child to fit in it. The water temperature is pleasant, so the child comfortably tolerates a session of about 30 or 45 minutes, depending on their age and endurance.

Hydrotherapy is a therapeutic activity that promotes psychomotor development through the action of water. Their physical properties (temperature, resistance, reduced environment) are used to help achieve the therapeutic goals that professional physiotherapists set for each child, together with the parents.
