Hydrotherapy Pool

Located at the Ongwanada Resource Centre on Portsmouth Avenue, the hydrotherapy pool is an essential resource for many people with developmental disabilities.  The pool is maintained at approximately 36C, allowing stiff muscles to relax, helps to reduce pain, improves circulation, and allows for moderate strengthening. Aquatic therapy not only helps enhance sensory processing for those with developmental disabilities, but it also helps people develop physically and become stronger. Many participants experience better coordination when in the water, a more extensive range of motion, improved balance, and increased physical endurance. Our change rooms are accessible, and the pool has a wheelchair ramp and mechanical lift.

An application form must be completed for people with developmental disabilities not supported by Ongwanada.  Appointments are required, and capacity is limited. Below are three separate documents that need to be completed before an initial visit. Free parking is available.
