What is Aquatic Therapy?
Aquatic therapy is the use of exercise performed in water as a treatment to help relieve pain and increase physical rehabilitation.
Buoyancy helps to reduce pressure on joints, and resistance provided from water exercise has been proven effective in increasing muscle strength and range of motion.
Uses for Aquatic Therapy
- Rehabilitation after orthopedic surgeries
- Rehabilitation after neurological injuries
- Muscle strengthening
- Improving joint function
- Hip dysplasia
Warm water temperatures help provide joint and muscle relief while offering safe physiotherapy for muscle conditioning.
We will adjust the water depth based on the size of your pet and their specific needs.
Animals often use their injured limb when supported by water, decreasing recovery time and rebuilding their strength.
Aquatic therapy also allows an outlet for your pet's energy that they can't otherwise use with an injury.
