Through our partnership with Canine Rehabilitation of Nashville, we offer a variety of onsite physical rehabilitation services for your pets.
Common treatments include: Manual therapy, laser therapy, underwater treadmill, land based exercise, and design of a personalized home program just for your dog or cat. Physical rehabilitation allows pets to return to normal activities sooner, and helps prevent re-injury.
The principles and techniques used are developed from human physical rehabilitation and have been time tested. In abbreviated form, the body and injury will recover faster with controlled activity* than with complete rest (passive recovery). Patients that are involved in physical rehabilitation tend to recover quicker, maintain more muscle mass and lose less motion of their joints. Through controlled activity, tissues of the body maintain elasticity and higher levels of functioning. This is true of muscles as well as articular cartilage.
