Canine Rehabilitation Therapy

Canine rehabilitation therapy is a growing field of veterinary treatment that can be very beneficial for dogs. It is most commonly utilized with arthritic dogs and those recovering from orthopedic surgery. It’s also used to support dogs with other musculoskeletal problems or neurological conditions. Implementing these non-invasive treatments can increase mobility and strength. It can also promote faster recovery, reduce chronic pain and, most importantly, improve a dog’s quality of life.

Initial visits include conducting a thorough physical examination, analyzing your dog’s gait, range of movement, and muscle mass. For dogs with chronic arthritis or other ongoing problems, sessions commonly coincide with administration of traditional medicines.

A rehabilitation plan can involve daily or weekly appointments, and they often take place over several months. Treatments are usually multifaceted. These include manual therapies such as manipulating the joints and muscles manually, exercises, or even laser therapy. Manual therapies can both promote mobility, improve circulation and help your dog feel more relaxed. Using specified exercises to promote increased movement, muscle strength, and flexibility is also very common, and you may be given "homework" to work on with your pet at home. These exercises can also be fantastic for encouraging body awareness and better balance. Such activities can include the use of exercise balls, balance blocks, resistance bands, or wobble boards. Treatments may also involve cool laser therapy to reduce inflammation and improve circulation.
