What Do We Do?
Animals suffer from many of the same ailments that people do e.g. arthritis, back and neck pain, trauma. Staff at our centre apply their knowledge of treating people to animals.
Animal physiotherapists must be qualified human physios before they can start to treat animals, so we are all very experienced in hands on treatment for bodies, whether they have two legs or four. Some animal physios continue to treat human clients as well; it is quite common for a client to bring in their animal for treatment, see the results, then ask for treatment for themselves.
Conversely, some human clients have had successful treatment for themselves, then look around for a physiotherapist to give similar treatment to their dog (cat, horse etc).
Treatment is specifically tailored to the patient and the condition, it would typically include:
- Joint mobilization
- Perhaps acupuncture
We have Sydney’s only underwater treadmill for dogs.
This machine offers huge benefits. The buoyancy, warmth and resistance of water takes stress off painful joints & limbs, whilst allowing the animal to exercise. Muscle strength & mobility can be regained after injury, surgery or neurological damage.
The treadmill is also an excellent way of improving strength & endurance for canine athletes; it offers a cross-training effect, using muscles differently to gravity based exercise. Hydrotherapy is excellent for general conditioning for all dogs: “normal” dogs that just need exercise, obese and elderly that need gentle, safe but effective exercise.
The treadmill is easily controlled for depth, warmth and resistance, according to individual need. We only use recycled water, each dog has a brand new bath with warm water from a sophisticated filtering system. To read more about the Treadmill, just click here .
