Bellevue Aquatics Group

group descriptionThis aquatic program runs for one hour. Participants are encouraged to work to their maximum potential. The exercises are performed in shoulder depth water. We do a series of range of motion and stretching exercises. Resistive movements with bar-bells of various sizes challenge upper extremity strength. Non-weight bearing, lower extremity exercises are done with the help of floatation noodles. We work on balance with various activities.Adaptions to exercises are offered to challenge the variety of abilities within the group. Those participants without lower extremity control are set up with adaptive equipment for safety and to allow for maximum independence. For those who are able, we do some lap swimming as part of the session.The instructors: all the hydrotherapy instructors have been trained to provide therapeutic exercises and adaptive techniques to assure the safety of all clients as they enter and exit the pool. All the pools have aquatic chair lifts to lower wheel chair participants into the pool. Some pools have stairs. All pools have traditional ladder entry.Close Description
