A site affected by illness, surgery or injury will very quickly cease to be used by the animal if it finds movement painful or too difficult. Muscle wastage begins within 3 days of inactivity.
If your pet is unable or reluctant to weight bear on land, starting hydrotherapy will begin their rehabilitation process much sooner preventing further weakness and starts to rebuild muscle mass and tone.
At Hainault Hydrotherapy we pride ourselves in ensuring we use the correct specific technology and techniques to retrain your pets brain and body to work together with the least amount of pain and discomfort to get the best results in the best time possible.
A combination of swimming and rest periods will maximize the benefits of the warm water and hydrostatic pressure acting as an anti-inflammatory, reducing recovery time.
