Hydrotherapy

Posted by Suzanne - July 11th, 2008

We got a surprise call on Thursday from the PT/OT clinic.  A spot became available in the aquatic-therapy class.  Yea!!!  Alan took Erin to her first visit that same afternoon.  Erin has been assigned to Lisa again.  Lisa knows Erin’s medical history and was the one who recommended that Erin take the class.  Lisa recommend that wait until we had a diagnosis before starting any treatment to make sure we were doing the right thing.  Alan said that Erin was a bit apprehensive at first.  Once Lisa got her in the water Erin realized that it was play time.  They mainly played with toys in the water.  Lisa managed to get her to lay back far enough to get her neck into the warm water.  Erin came home cranky and her skin was flushed.  She crashed on the couch and slept well.  I am so excited she gets to have this therapy.  Erin will go once a week for a 50 minute session.  I wasn’t expecting to be called so soon.  The sooner the better!
