- Hydrotherapy: build muscle around surgery sites and relieve arthritis pain.
Payton, who is 10 now, had her first ACL surgery when she was (2) and her second at (5). She has been swimming since shortly before her first surgery. Swimming helped her strengthen her muscles before surgery which made the whole recovery process easier. Even when setbacks arose, despite other therapies, swimming was the only thing that helped her. Even as an older dog, she does not take any supplements or pain meds, and I truly believe keeping her muscles strong through swimming has made that possible.
