Increase Bone & Muscle Strength

A 2019 study by BMC Veterinary Research examined the use of equine water treadmills for high resistance, low impact exercise. Rehabilitation can promote healing by increasing the flexibility of injured tissues, increasing bone and muscle strength, and restoring the range of motion of effected joints.

The study found that water immersion during treadmill exercise reduced segmental accelerations and increased attenuation in horses. Concluding that water treadmill exercise can be beneficial in the rehabilitation of limb injuries in horses.
