MetadataShow full item record
In this article a lot of aspects of water will be discussed and the points who are important for hydrotherapy are highlighted. Also I discussed a lot of articles in which there is a form of training in water. At last I did a small research about the outcome of patients with injury of the tendons of the lower extremities which have been in an aquatrainer in comparison with patients which have a standard protocol of walking. I have taken a group patients who have had an injury of the tendons of the lower extremities and have been in the aquatrainer from Horse Aquatherapy in Olst. This group did I have compared with a group of patients who have had an injury of the tendons of the lower extremities and have been in Utrecht at the Facultary Veterinary Medicine and had a rehabilitation in the form of a standard protocol of walking. Of the group which was at the Horse Aquatherapy in Olst 9 horses have been come to the level of sports which the horses had before the injury. 2 horses are sound enough to ride with, but they did not have come to the level of sport which the horse has before the injury. 1 horse did not become sound enough to ride with. The other group who have been to Utrecht at the Faculty Veterinary Medicine and had an upgoing protocol of walking 2 horses have been come to the level of sports which the horse has before the injury. 6 horses did not become to the level at which the horse was before the injury but are sound enough to ride with. 7 horses did not become sound enough to ride with. There are a lot of points of discussion the way my comparison is been done, but there is a lot of difference in the outcome of the two groups which are compared. Further research is necessary about the best way a horse with an injury of the tendons of the lower extremities can be treated.
