Rebound therapy is therapeutic exercise for individuals with a range of physical and learning disabilities on a trampoline. It is provided by an experienced, specially trained physiotherapist. At Physio.co.uk, our specialist physiotherapists have undergone intensive rebound therapy training and have valuable experience working with children of all ages in order to provide an excellent standard of safe and effective evidence based exercise therapy.


How does Rebound Therapy work?



Rebound therapy uses bounce, momentum and rhythm to facilitate active movement in a gravity free scenario. It is fun and challenging activity enjoyed by children of all ages and abilities.


Treatment with Rebound Therapy



Rebound therapy can be used to treat a wide range of conditions and problems. Children may have mild or severe physical disabilities with learning difficulties, sensory deficits or autism.

Your child may benefit from rebound therapy if they have poor balance, limited active movement and altered muscle tone. Rebound therapy improves both high and low muscle tone as well as cardiovascular fitness. It is appropriate for children who have a lack of awareness of body position, reduced sensation and problems with posture. It does not matter if your child has a limited ability to communicate as rebound therapy is an enjoyable, stimulating activity that improves self-esteem and confidence.


Physiotherapy and rebound therapy



A specialist physiotherapist from Physio.co.uk will carry out a detailed and through assessment of your child’s muscle strength, tone and range of movement, pain, sensation and functional ability in your child’s home, school or at one of our clinic locations. Your child will be observed interacting with others and carrying out functional tasks such as eating and drinking or standing to identify whether they will benefit from rebound therapy. The findings of the assessment will be discussed and the goals of rebound therapy will be documented. Objective outcome measures of balance and muscle strength will be recorded and re-assessed after a period of time to demonstrate your child’s physical improvement as a result of regular physiotherapy and rebound therapy sessions.

Rebound therapy is an evidence based treatment that significantly improves movement, balance, tone, fitness and communication skills. Children substantially benefit from rebound therapy when it is used alongside physiotherapy treatment. The benefits of rebound therapy include:
  • Increased balance
  • Increased active movement
  • Increased or decreased muscle tone
  • Increased fitness and exercise tolerance
  • Increased sensory integration
  • Increased spatial awareness
  • Increased confidence in movement
  • Improved body image
  • Improved posture
  • Improved communication skills
  • Improved social skills
  • Improved quality of life and independence
In order to gain ultimate benefit and carry-over from a rebound therapy session, it is important that it is provided alongside physiotherapy sessions at one of our clinic locations or in the home environment. Your physiotherapist will teach you and your child how to warm-up and cool-down before and after a rebound therapy session and how to stretch and strengthen in order to gain maximum benefit from the gravity free situation on the trampoline.
