Physical Rehabilitation For Pets
Animal Rehabilitation is physical therapy for pets. We take proven human physical therapy concepts to boost joint mobility, function, and muscle strength and adapts those techniques to animals. The results of animal rehabilitation can lessen pain, increase strength, and improve recovery from surgery, injury, obesity, age-related diseases, and degenerative diseases. Physical therapy aims to enhance the animal’s quality of life and lower any pain your pet could be suffering. Most animal physical therapy is geared for canines, but all animal species can benefit from treatment as well. Pet rehabilitation has a vast variety of benefits that have been acknowledged in the veterinary industry for many years. The clinical practice of physical therapy for animals is a fairly new field in the U.S., although Europe has been utilizing and recommending canine & equine physical therapy for over 15 years. The veterinary community has seen an increase in interest in the area of animal rehabilitation over the last three to five years. Resources, training, and accreditation have all become more widely available to practicing U.S. veterinarians. Due to the rapid growth in the study and effectiveness of animal physical therapy, concepts in rehabilitative care are constantly improving and expanding.
