Rehabilitation therapy helps treat animals with conditions causing pain or trouble with mobility. Much like human physical therapy helps us get back on our feet after injury, rehabilitation therapy can help our pets recover faster, feel better, and return to normal function and mobility. Rehabilitation therapy can help reduce pain, speed up healing, improve normal joint range of motion and mobility, combat obesity, improve fitness, and promote a better quality of life for our pets.
Rehabilitation therapy embodies many diagnostic and treatment options, including:
*Manual therapy, such as massage, stretching, and joint mobilization
*Pulsed magnetic therapy
*Brace and wheelchair fitting
What pets benefit from rehab therapy?
*Pets recovering from surgery such as for cranial cruciate injury, fracture repairs, etc
*Pets with orthopedic injuries and conditions such as arthritis, hip/elbow dysplasia, and soft tissue injuries
*Neurologic patients, such as those with disc injuries, post-operative hemilaminectomies, and degenerative disease
*Working, performance, or active dogs to improve fitness and conditioning
