Physiotherapy, Rehabilitation and Hydrotherapy

Rehabilitation (physiotherapy) is a non-invasive approach to improving function and is provided in a safe and controlled environment. It applies human physical therapy principles and techniques to the canine patient. The goal of physical rehabilitation is to maximize function by promoting a rapid recovery after injury or surgery and slowing down the progression of chronic
diseases.

Benefits include:

  •  Accelerating tissue healing
  •  Restoring and maintaining joint range of motion
  •  Increasing muscle flexibility
  •  Building muscle mass to improve strength
  •  Decreasing swelling and inflammation
  •  Decreasing pain
  •  Improving endurance
  •  Improving balance
  •  Improving proprioception

 

Pet owners also benefit from physical therapy by:

  • Learning how to prevent injuries and complications
  • Learning how to appropriately manage acute and chronic conditions (neurologic dysfunction, chronic arthritis conditions, orthopaedic injuries, etc).
