Hydrotherapy is a water-based rehabilitation.
Hydrotherapy is a great way to improve mobility and rebuild or maintain muscle mass without your dog having to bear weight on the affected area, allowing your dog to exercise fully, maintain fitness levels and increase its natural range of motion more quickly, in a safe and controlled environment.
Hydrotherapy is widely recognised as a complementary therapy by the veterinary profession and can be of great benefit in the treatment of many medical conditions including arthritic, orthopaedic and neurological conditions as well as muscle, ligament and other soft tissue injuries.
Conditions commonly benefiting from hydrotherapy include:
- Hip and Elbow Dysplasia
- Degenerative Myelopathy
- Legg Calve Perthes Disease
- Luxating Patella
- Spinal Injuries
- Cruciate Ligament Injuries
- Intervertebral Disc Disease (degenerative type)
- Chronic Degenerative Radiculomyelopathy (CDRM)
- Fibrocatilaginous Embolism (FCE)
