Underwater treadmill therapy
Often after an injury to the spinal cord, complete or partial paralysis can occur. Hydrotherapy can aid in a faster recovery time and help your dog stay strong during the healing process.
Injuries to the canine knee are extremely common. Exercise in the underwater treadmill can help stablize the ligaments and tendons as well as maintain muscle mass.
Often corrected with surgery, hydrotherapy complements recovery and also provides an alternative in nonsurgical cases. A buoyant environment coupled with added resistance allows muscle mass to be built quickly to support joints.
Warm water and a buoyant environment allows animals with arthritis to work out comfortably. The underwater treadmill permits muscles, ligaments and tendons to stretch out of their contracted state
and improve range of motion.
After surgery or an injury, lack of activity can cause muscle to waste away. The underwater treadmill provides a safe, controlled environment for activity to resume sooner than on land.
An overweight dog places much more stress on its joints and is at greater risk for injury. Exercise in the underwater treadmill provides an intense workout in a safe environment.
