About canine rehabilitation
To restore normal function and movement after surgery or injury, and to maintain maximum function and prevent further problems in chronic pathologies.
EVALUATION IS THE FIRST STEP
A Thorough evaluation of your pet is necessary to determine the main problems. Typical problems are loss of range of motion, weakness, and neurological deficits. We work with functional problems such as gait, inability to climb stairs, and elimination problems.
A TREATMENT PLAN
An individual program is devised using ultrasound, electric stimulation (e-stim), massage, joint mobilizations, exercise; stretching, resistance, balance and proprioception, pool therapy, and hands on therapy, as appropriate.
Who needs rehab?
For pet guardians who want the best care for their companions, canine rehabilitation helps with a variety of health situations.
· Sprains & Strains
· Post fractures
· Joint Surgeries
· Tendon repairs
· Sports Injuries
We use manual therapy, modalities, and exercise to decrease pain, improve circulation, increase range of motion, increase strength and normalize gait to restore maximum function.
· Post surgeries
· Disc lesions
· Cord strokes
· Peripheral nerve injuries
Loss of function from a neurological deficit benefits from specialized therapy to restore proprioception, balance, coordination, and strength.
We have clinics conveniently located in Boulder, Longmont, and Lakewood. We take referrals from veterinarians and will keep them updated regularly on treatment and progress, upon request.
