Good Therapy Ideas For Children With Cerebral Palsy

Posted by Frank Spector | Oct 05, 2011 | 0 Comments

 The children who we represent with cerebral palsy (CP) are often in and out of hospitals.  If they need physical or occupational therapy, they get it in a hospital setting. Today's blog provides alternatives.

Horse Therapy

Maryland Therapeutic Riding is an excellent website describing the benefits of horse therapy. The website can be found at www.mtrinc.org.  Children who have CP benefit from riding a horse because it helps with muscle strength and tone. It helps improve coordination, sensory processing and cognitive development.

Children also get to be outside in a pleasant environment.

Water Therapy 

Another beneficial type of therapy is water therapy, also known as aquatic therapy.  It is a low impact activity for all individuals with disabilities. Aquatic therapy helps with muscle tone and strength.  It can be used for children who have motor problems since there is weightlessness in the water. Aquatic therapy improves self esteem as it provides a sense of accomplishment.

So not all therapy has to be in the hospital. Horse therapy and water therapy are two different ways to help children with CP while having fun at the same time.
