Recovering from injuries - including fracture, soft issue and neurological damage

The buoyancy of the water helps to support the dogs body weight and therefore the dog benefits from partial weight bearing environment. This results in pain being reduced during aquatic exercise. The pressure of the water helps to reduce inflammation and swelling.

We would use the treadmill to treat spinal conditions because:

  • The buoyancy of the water supports the spine
  • We can get into the treadmill to replicate the movement of the limbs to re-educate the brain
  • We can isolate limb movement to concentrate on affected limbs
  • It provides maximum flexion and extension of the limbs
  • Quickly increases muscle mass
  • Helps to strengthen core muscles and therefore can reduce incontinence
  • Re educates the gait pattern following the muscle atrophy in the fore or hind limbs
  • Provides an earlier return to activity
  • Very easy to observe the range of movement (ROM) through the glass sides
  • The dog is unable to cheat unlike in the pool where they have a tendency to tuck their hind legs up making it difficult to get a good rom.
