Jonathan is a little boy who has a bright smile and a love of water! He also has a very limited ability to use his legs and comes to Children’s Village for therapy in the pool. Using the benefit of the warm water in the pool, his therapist works to stretch and strengthen his muscles. As his father positions the chair lift on the side of the pool, he gently lowers Jonathan into the water as his big smile brightens the room! At that point he knows he is heading into the comforting warm water. His therapist gently sways him back and forth along the top of the water’s edge, helping stretch his muscles and he’s able to experience the enjoyment of floating on the water. Jonathan’s legs are moved in a kicking motion to build strength and increase movement, buoyed by the magic of the water at the pool at Children’s Village.
