Veterinary rehabilitation enhances quality of life by treating pain and improving mobility. Has your dog been diagnosed with a cruciate ligament tear (ACL injury in human terms), disc disease, arthritis, or other conditions that causes pain or lameness? Has your horse been diagnosed with laminitis, navicular disease, back pain, or soft tissue injuries? Rehabilitation can help!
Rehabilitation involves therapeutic exercises tailored to the specific needs of each patient. But before exercises will be beneficial, the priority is pain control and tissue healing. Services to treat pain and promote tissue healing include some or all of the following: acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, transcutaneous electrical stimulation (TENS) neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES), massage, chiropractic, laser therapy and pulsed electro-magnetic therapy (PEMF). Diet, nutraceuticals, herbs, as well as pharmaceuticals for joint health and pain management are also customized for each patient.
This whole animal approach promotes comfort and healing—for mental as well as physical health. This allows animals to do exercises that will improve strength, flexibility and body awareness, which in turn allows them to move and function at their best!
