Rebound therapy uses trampolines to provide therapeutic exercises provided by an experienced, specially trained physiotherapist. It is used to facilitate movement, promote balance, support an increase, or decrease in muscle tone and can be used as part of sensory integration treatment. Rebound therapy uses bounce, momentum and rhythm to facilitate active movement while being gravity free. It is appropriate for children who have a lack of awareness of body position, reduced sensation and problems with posture – these issues can often be noted in children who have a vision impairment.
Young people with vestibular needs may benefit from rebound therapy and it is offered around the country. This type of therapy isn’t suitable for every child so you will have to complete an in-depth referral form prior to being accepted.
