Pet Physical Rehabilitation
Along with such alternative modes of treatment as chiropractic care, acupuncture, and traditional Chinese medicine, our full-service animal hospital has offered since 2010 veterinary rehabilitation therapy for pets!
Physical rehabilitation functions to increase your pet's range of motion, improve balance and overall muscle strength, and reduce pain. Our rehabilitation program treats disease or physical weakness by means of special physical exercises, massage, heat/cold therapy, electrotherapy, underwater treadmill, and/or ultrasound therapy. This therapy is helpful in treating pets with neurological diseases, hip pain, soft tissue sprains/strains, and arthritis, as well as those recovering from orthopedic surgery. Any animal experiencing stiffness, trauma, pain, muscle atrophy, imbalance, or inflammation can benefit.
Veterinary rehabilitation therapy can help with the following conditions:
- Neurological diseases/injuries
- Post-orthopedic and neurological surgeries
- Hip Dysplasia
- Joint/tendon injuries
- Degenerative disc disease
- Muscle disorders
- Weakness in limb(s)
