The underwater treadmill is a form of hydrotherapy that utilizes the properties of water, including buoyancy, hydrostatic pressure, viscosity, and resistance, to improve physiological function.
Incorporating the treadmill with water therapy allows for exercise with less strain on the joints, improved range of motion, and increased stability for patients that may have significant weakness.
This exercise is excellent for patients that have arthritic pain, weakness, neurologic disabilities, and for pets that just love the water and/or a challenge in muscle strengthening.
Sessions vary for each patient based on their current level of conditioning and concurrent medical problems. This service is offered at all three of our locations.
