Plus many other conditions.
The underwater treadmill works on a combination of speed and water. By controlling these factors, we can manage the effort your dog is making which can be tailored to thier specific requirements.
The bouyancy of the body in the water reduces the sheer force applied to the joints, enabling your pet to move along the treadmill with reduced pain levels.
The height level of the water can be altered, which in turn affects the surface tension. the higher the water level, the greater the support for unsteady patients. In turn, a lower water level provides less support and can ultimately lead to an increase the animals reaction time/core strength.
Hydrostatic pressure can assist with your pet's circulation and increases the metabolic rate, which in turn can increase the calorific burn.
Water set at an optimum temperature can relax muscles, relieve pain and aid circulation.
