    Question submitted by a participant in the Water Therapy webinar:

    Is there any concern (or more of a concern) of underwater treadmill for patients that may have cervical instability?

    The UWTM can be used in cases of cervical instability. But as with all conditions that have the potential to decline, the treating therapist has to prevent the dog from over-working itself so a slow start is recommended.
