Hydrotherapists aid in the rehabilitation of patients recovering from surgery and injuries.
Patients with ongoing conditions such as osteoarthritis can also benefit, along with those requiring help to achieve weight loss or increase fitness.
Benefits of hydrotherapy include:
- Relief of pain, swelling and stiffness
- Muscle strengthening and maintenance
- Increased range of motion in the joints
- Improved circulation
- Increased speed of recovery
- Gait modification
- Increased movement
- Slows the progression of degenerative disease
- Weight loss
All rehabilitation programmes are discussed with the vet and pet owner. They are then tailored to your pet's individual needs.
Our hydrotherapy centres in Barnsley and Guernsey incorporate an aquatic treadmill allowing full gait extension and analysis. The warm, clean water provides support and massage of the body, whilst the hydrotherapist carefully manages the exercise session on the treadmill.
We are happy to accept referrals from other practices.
