India has opened its first specialized hydrotherapy treatment for elephants suffering from arthritis, joint pain and foot ailments at a wildlife SOS Elephant Hospital, Mathura, UP.

  • It is a collaboration between Uttar Pradesh Forest Department and the NGO Wildlife SOS.
  • The jumbo hydrotherapy pool installed at the Wildlife SOS Elephant Hospital is equipped with high-pressure water jets that massage the elephants’ feet and body which is a critically important component of the treatment as it also helps oxygen and vital minerals to reach the muscle tissues.
  • Hydrotherapy helps in relieving chronic muscle aches as well as rebuild muscle memory with its natural resistance.
  • NGO Wildlife SOS works towards protecting Indian wildlife, conserving habitat, studying biodiversity, conducting research and taking action against animal cruelty, rescuing wildlife in distress, working to resolve man-animal conflicts while promoting and educating the public about the need for habitat protection.
