Middletown Animal Hospital is proud to offer Underwater Treadmill as part of our Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Services.  We are the only veterinary clinic in Lake, Mendocino, Napa & Sonoma Counties to do so.  An underwater treadmill has many uses in an exercise therapy program.  There are numerous benefits to exercise in an underwater treadmill vs. “dry land”.  Foremost among these is the reduced impact on painful limbs or joints and the increased resistance underwater which allows the patient more time to react to changes in speed or footing and builds confidence.  It is not unusual for patients immobilized by neurologic disease, arthritis or obesity to simulate walking movements underwater.  Movement is key to recovery and weight loss and gives patients a tremendous confidence boost.  This kind of exercise is also extremely effective at building core body strength and improving cardiovascular fitness.
