WHAT IS VETERINARY PHYSICAL THERAPY?

Physical Therapy has long been the standard of care in human medicine to maximize recovery following injury or surgery and to successfully manage chronic conditions such as arthritis. At Allure Integrated Pet Specialists, Rehabilitation bridges
Western and Alternative medicine to give your pet the best of both worlds.

Our Rehabilitation therapies augment the relief provided by pharmacology and acupuncture/herbal supplements, often decreasing and even eliminating the need for conventional pain medications.

Our ultimate goal is to empower you with the tools to help your pet attain the best quality of life possible and return to the activities you both enjoy.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR APPOINTMENT?

When your family Veterinarian or surgeon refers your pet to Allure, your initial appointment will include a consultation with our Physical Therapist. She will complete a comprehensive Rehabilitation assessment of your pet to identify the specific
challenges your pet faces and discuss the goals you have to restore your pet’s quality of life. Together, you will create a plan that best meets your pet’s needs which may include treatment sessions at Allure, a home exercise program, or most
commonly, a combination of the two.

Our Rehabilitation department’s comprehensive suite of services and equipment includes many of the technologies found in a human Physical Therapy clinic as well as tools and treatments uniquely suited to animals’ needs.
