Eagle Mount's Therapeutic Swim Program offers year round aquatic therapy to individuals in southwest Montana. The support of 175 volunteers and a trained and dedicated staff, allow people with disabilities to enjoy the freedom of movement and sense of empowerment that water can offer.
The Aquatic Therapy program serves all disabilities with separate sessions offered to individuals with Parkinson's, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Head Trauma and Spinal Cord Injuries. The exercises used in aquatic therapy, stretch and increase muscle tone, expand range of motion, and increase endurance.
Children's groups are divided into toddlers and those over five years old. To many of the participants, this program offers a support group for family members as they participate with their disabled family member in the pool. All disabilities, whether temporary or permanent, can benefit from the warm and safe environment of the pool.
