Hydrotherapy – Our Aquatread Underwater Treadmill provides a controlled environment for rehabilitation and exercise. The properties of water decrease joint loading, decrease joint stiffness, reduce tissue swelling and build muscle mass. Patients exercise more comfortably and confidently as the buoyancy of water decreases the load on painful joints. Water also increases muscle support to joints, thus assisting with function and the re-learning of correct posture and gait. Exercise in water has multiple benefits that will be used to improve and maintain health and quality life in our young, middle-aged and geriatric pets.
