The use of water-based exercise as a treatment to relieve pain and improve physical rehabilitation is known as aquatic therapy.
Buoyancy reduces joint pressure, and the resistance provided by water exercise has been shown to improve muscle strength and range of motion.
Warm water provides joint and muscle relief while also providing safe physiotherapy for muscle conditioning.
We will adjust the water depth based on the size of your pet and their specific needs.
When animals are supported by water, they frequently use their injured limb, reducing recovery time and increasing strength.
Aquatic therapy also provides an outlet for your pet's energy that they otherwise wouldn't be able to use due to their injury.
