Rehab plans vary based on specific conditions of the pet, as well as their specific needs. A plan will be created at the initial appointment and is continually reassessed based on how the pet is progressing.
Generally, most conditions respond when formal rehab is performed 1 to 2 times per week for 4 to 8 weeks. These sessions are about 60 minutes and may include massage, passive range of motion, joint mobilizations, myofascial release, acupuncture, cold laser therapy and exercises for strength and balance.
If the condition being treated is more chronic, such as arthritis or back pain, most clients find that subsequent “maintenance” visits weekly to once a month are integral to maintaining their pet’s condition.
