  • Physical manipulation, manual mobilization and massage
  • Physical exercises and stretching
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Thermotherapy
  • Cryotherapy
  • Laser therapy
  • Electrical stimulation

    Which animals are good candidates for physiotherapy and rehabilitation treatment?

    Rehab treatment and physio can be adapted to the patient, which is why they are a great choice for many animals, including:

  • Animals that have recently undergone orthopedic surgery
  • Animals suffering from neurological disorders that affect cartilage, bones, ligaments, muscles or tendons
  • Animals suffering from osteoarthritis or other conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system
  • Animals diagnosed with an incurable disorder (to help with pain relief)
  • Animals with chronic pain
  • Animals that cannot undergo orthopedic surgery
  • Etc.

    How can rehabilitation treatment help?

    Rehabilitation treatment can help your pet in numerous different ways. It can:

  • Help your pet recover faster
  • Alleviate pain
  • Improve flexibility and range of motion
  • Strengthen stabilizing muscles
  • Increase strength and endurance
  • Reduce the risk of complications
  • Prevent injury
  • Etc.

    What role does massage therapy play?

    Massage therapy holds the same benefits for your pet as it does for you. It stimulates blood and lymphatic circulation, promotes relaxation and increases endorphins (hormones related to the feeling of wellbeing). Massage also helps relieve the muscle and joint pain common in older animals.
