Shayna Gavin, Splash Principal Physiotherapist
Physiotherapy intensives are coming!
We're excited to be doing physiotherapy intensives again this school holidays.
From Monday 29th June to Friday 3rd July, we will be seeing children in the water as well as at home and in your favourite playgrounds.
Aquatic physiotherapy ("hydrotherapy") in Melbourne
I will be seeing children every morning for the week, working towards their goals.
Some children will be working on a movement goal, and others will be focussing more on swim safer skills and transitioning into community based swimming lessons.
We will be using the private, heated indoor pool in Moonee Ponds. And we will have the luxury of having the pool to ourselves for this whole week!
It's lovely and steamy and warm in winter, just like a big bath the kids tell me!
Physiotherapy home visits in Melbourne
I'll also be doing some home visits during that school holidays week. It's a great chance to catch members of the family who often have work committments during term time. And it's great to see school kids when they're not tired after a big day at school!
