At Nautilus Pet Rehabilitation, we incorporate underwater treadmill (UWTM) to provide the ability to offer exercises that are functional without being painful. As such, balance and strengthening exercises can be performed safely in an aquatic environment well before they can be attempted on land. UWTM also adds the benefits of weight bearing while giving the ability to alter the water depth and tread speed in a buoyant environment. Aside from the obvious goals of strength, speed, and endurance, UWTM also aids in correcting coordination, balance, and postural awareness.
