Bath Canine Hydrotherapy Centre is based at Rosemary Lodge Hospital and provides both physiotherapy and hydrotherapy for canine and feline patients.
Physiotherapy involves the assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. Chartered physiotherapists are highly trained to assess and treat a wide range of pathologies and are specialists in tailoring physiotherapy treatment programmes to an individual animal.
Animals, like people, respond to physiotherapy and it can be used following trauma, injury or recent surgery with a programme designed to help restore loss of movement, strength and stability.
Hydrotherapy is the use of water to aid the rehabilitation process. At Bath Canine Hydrotherapy we use an underwater treadmill as part of particular treatment programmes - this can provide a reduced weight bearing environment to reduce stress on damaged tissues and joints; increase muscle bulk and strength; improve stability around joints; improve fitness levels; reduce weight; facilitate a more normal walking pattern following an operation or lameness; and to perform assisted walking following a neurological or spinal problem.
We have now welcomed our new physiotherapist, Alexandra Hallett. Who has now started at Rosemary Lodge, please contact Rosemary Lodge for all enquires.
As well as physiotherapy and hydrotherapy we also offer K-Laser treatment which has been shown to improve tissue repair following a soft tissue injury, improve wound healing, reduce inflammation, aid pain relief and improve conditions such as tendinopathies, sprains and muscle spasm, osteoarthritis, post operative and traumatic wounds.
