Veterinary Rehabilitation works much like human rehabilitation. Using various methods and equipment, veterinarians are able to implement a treatment plan to restore mobility, strengthen muscles and joints, help pets heal faster post-operatively while focusing on reducing pain. Physical rehabilitation is the treatment of injury or illness to decrease pain and restore function.
This can include both acute and chronic issues which are often neurologic or orthopedic in nature. These goals are achieved with the use of modalities and techniques described in the Available Therapies section. Rehabilitation techniques can also be used for weight management and athletic conditioning.
