Paws Plus Underwater Treadmill System & Hydrotherapy Pool
The original underwater treadmill system has been completely re-engineered.
Designed for ease of use, the Aqua Paws Plus offers several innovative
features. Pool is currently under refurbishment.
•Water buoyancy reduces gravity, diminishing concussive forces
•Allows early intervention and quicker recovery times for animals
•Water provides resistance throughout the range of motion, providing
a closed chain, hydrokinetic exercise
•Warm water assists in pain reduction
•Older animals can exercise effectively
•Water height is regulated to accommodate different sized animals
and adjust for weight bearing
It has long
been established that hydrotherapy is beneficial in the recovery programme
for certain injuries in the veterinary field. Until recently its use on
animals was restricted to performance horses and racing greyhounds. In
order to widen the availability of hydrotherapy for dogs to the general
public a number of interested parties have designed and built hydrotherapy
pools specifically to provide treatment to all types of dog - racing,
working, show or pet.
Hydrotherapy can be used in the treatment of arthritis, orthopaedic conditions,
muscle, ligament and many other types of soft tissue injury. It can also
help with general convalescence.
work in human physiotherapy has demonstrated that a suitably monitored
course of hydrotherapy acts by encouraging a full range of joint motion
in reduced weight conditions, thus improving muscle tone and promoting
tissue repair without imposing undue stress on damaged tissues.
The hydrotherapy team are all Certified Canine Rehabilitation Hydrotherapists trained. This means we work to the highest ethical and care standards in the UK and you can be sure that the member of staff looking after your pet is both well trained, qualified and experienced.
