Fun For Disabled Kids

 Disabled children enjoyed a hydrotherapy event last week to, raise awareness of the benefits of hydrotherapy for children with disabilities and provide a fun activity for both children and their parents/carers during the Easter holidays.

The day, at Ravenscliffe High School and Sports College, consisted of 20-minute sessions with qualified physiotherapist Georgina Thornton-Frankland, who was on hand to work with the children, as well as their parents and carers, to encourage physical exercise and movement.

 ne-on-one tutorials were available to attendees, who ranged from babies to teenagers. 

For many people living with disabilities, hydrotherapy provides an opportunity to move their bodies in new ways and learn new exercises, which can be translated to their everyday lives and help with their rehabilitation.

Margaret Ryan, from the medical law team at Irwin Mitchell, said: ““In our work we understand just how important access to these kind of services can be.”
