PHYSICAL THERAPY – CANINE PATIENT
WHAT IS THERAPEUTIC EXERCISE?
Therapeutic exercise is the real backbone of Rehabilitation, creating long term improvements in comfort and mobility. We utilize a variety of equipment to address your dog’s specific needs.Inflatable balance discs and bones, physiorolls, wobble boards, and cavalettis are employed to challenge your dog for better strength, balance and coordination. Our specially designed exercise yard incorporates “real world obstacles”such as steps, inclines and a sand pit.Sometimes, no equipment is needed and our therapist uses her knowledge of biomechanics to harness the assistance or resistance of gravity alone to provide exercise and movement retraining. To compliment the exercises your pet completes at our clinic, you will also receive customized home exercise instructions to use common household items to continue your pet’s“gym time” at home.
