Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy relieves joint and muscle pain, stimulates and trains the cardiovascular system.

It has the effect of:
Muscle relaxation, pain relief, improved blood circulation, reduced inflammation, improved mobility, aids neurological rehabilitation, relieves symptoms of conditions such as osteoarthritis, back pain, and other musculoskeletal disorders.

 

What can hydrotherapy do?

  • Rehabilitate the dog's musculoskeletal system.

  • Maintain or improve physical condition (elderly dogs, dogs suffering from osteoarthritis, sedentary dogs, dogs with amputations or other problems that prevent them from using their limbs properly).

  • Reduce recovery time after an accident affecting the musculoskeletal system or after surgery.

  • Maintain muscle mass and mobility when another procedure (e.g. surgery) is not indicated (e.g. for patients who cannot be operated on due to other illnesses or age, or when the success of surgery cannot be guaranteed).

  • Improve neurological function, e.g. after herniated discs, degenerative myelopathy or other diseases affecting the neurological system.

  • Increase joint mobility and ROM (range of motion).

  • Help dogs lose weight without overloading the joints (e.g. in cases of obesity).

Important!

Before coming for a hydrotherapy session, make sure your four-legged friend is clean and has been brushed to remove as much hair as possible so as not to overload my filters.

He should also have relieved himself before coming for treatment.

If you have a toy or treats that your dog really likes, you can bring them along to make your pet feel more comfortable.

If you're planning hydrotherapy after surgery, it would be ideal if your dog could familiarize himself with hydrotherapy before the operation.

 

Please note

In some cases, an examination by a veterinarian may be necessary before starting physiotherapy treatment, in order to rule out diseases that cannot be treated by physiotherapy.
