Pediatric Aquatic Physical Therapy at Fauquier Health

Sabrina Love enjoys aquatic therapy at Fauquier Health!

Fauquier Health now offers pediatric aquatic physical therapy in our pool on the Fauquier Hospital campus in Warrenton. The therapeutic pool, with water kept at 92 degrees, is an ideal atmosphere to enable our young patients to move freely without the confines of gravity.

  • The water enables children with disabilities to go through the developmental progression in a fun environment.

  • Children with sensory impairments are often able to accomplish more & progress faster when aquatic therapy is incorporated in their rehabilitation program.

  • Children with neurological impairments are able to facilitate movement that is inhibited by gravity on land.

  • Life long skills can be acquired, encouraging fitness later in life.

We currently have two pediatric therapists who are certified by the Aquatic Therapy Rehab Institute to provide these services:

  • Kristine Trimble, PT, DPT, ATRIC

  • Pam DeRivero, LPTA, ATRIC
Catherine Arellano and Pam DeRivero take a moment to clown around for the camera.
