Physical Rehabilitation is a non-invasive way to restore optimal mobility and function to your pet’s musculoskeletal system. The purpose of rehabilitation is to return the body to normal function as quickly as possible following disease, injury or surgery, and to relieve acute or chronic pain.

Benefits of Physical Rehabilitation include:

  • Reduced pain
  • Accelerated natural healing processes
  • Early restoration of the neuromuscular system
  • Reduction and prevention of muscle atrophy
  • Minimized secondary trauma due to surgery or injury
  • Improved joint biomechanics and flexibility
  • Improved cardiovascular function and stimulation of blood circulation
  • Improved performance, speed, strength, endurance, and quality of movement
  • Weight reduction
  • Excellent conditioning for athletics as well as obese, deconditioned animals
  • Positive psychological effects
  • Prevention of further injury through owner education

Commonly treated conditions include:

  • Post-surgical recovery
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Arthritis, muscle atrophy
  • Cranial cruciate injury
  • Herniated (“slipped”) disk
  • Weakness and paralysis
  • Luxating patella
