Welcome to VETSWIM
Hydrotherapy at Rainsbrook Veterinary Group.
Aquatic exercise programmes have been well documented to have benefits in human patient. The support provided by the water allows impact exercise, whilst reducing the likelihood of injury to muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Hydrotherapy involves the use of therapeutic exercise in warm water – a combination of warmth and hydrostatic pressure reduces pain and swelling, promotes muscle relaxation and improves circulation and healing.
Hydrotherapy may thus be used as an aid to rehabilitation of musculoskeletal function, allowing muscle strengthening and progression to land based exercise.
Water based exercise is also suitable to help with weight loss without causing increased stress on joints.
Allowing dogs to get used to water and to swimming in a controlled environment is also an additional bonus and is a popular reason for coming to use the facilities.
All our hydrotherapy sessions last for 30 minutes and are by appointment only
You do not need to be a Rainsbrook client in order to benefit from our hydrotherapy facilities. All you need to do is have your primary vet complete the Vet Registration Form which is available in our Pool Brochure and bring along with your to your first session.
Discounts are available for when buying sessions in advance.
