Helping your pet heal from surgery, an injury, limitation in mobility, or pain can be a confusing and difficult process. Rehabilitation can speed the process of healing, help you gain insight on what your pet needs to recover, and help your pet feel well again. Rehabilitation is as beneficial for pets as physical therapy is for humans. After an initial evaluation, a specialized set of treatments will be applied based on your pet's needs. Dr. Shea will also guide you on how to best help your pet at home and in your daily life tol help your pet get on the path to recovery.
Canine Physical Rehabilitation can be beneficial for the following conditions:
Degenerative joint disease or Arthritis
Tendon, ligament and muscle injuries
Intervertebral disc disease (IVDD)
Rear limb weakness
Recovery from musculoskeletal surgery
The first visit is a 1-hour evaluation for gait analysis, assessing the range of motion for each joint, application of modalities such as laser, electrode-stimulation, girth measurements, manual therapy, and neurological screening with a discussion regarding your pet's rehabilitation plan. Please bring your dog hungry and ready for treats! If your dog has any food allergies, please let us know and bring any toys or items you feel would help to motivate your pet. Rehabilitation is a process Dr. Shea is here to help!
