What is Physical Rehabilitation?

Physical Rehabilitation is a non-invasive approach used to speed up the recovery of patients with both chronic and acute conditions. It can help recovery, alleviate pain after an injury or surgery, and improve circulation, flexibility, range of motion, and coordination. It can also increase confidence and comfort level even in a patient who cannot return to full mobility, as well as enhance the pet’s quality of life.

Physical rehabilitation generally uses therapeutic exercises that are performed in conjunction with physical modalities such as hydrotherapy, cryotherapy, therapeutic laser and neuromuscular electrical stimulation.

Rest alone after injury usually does not relieve the problems caused by inflammation and spasm. Also, the body adapts and protects the injured area long after healing has started. These protective methods, as well as fibrosis and scar tissue, alter movement of the whole musculoskeletal system and increase strain on other areas.

Rehabilitation should start as soon as possible after injury to prevent unwanted scarring of tissues like muscle, tendons and ligaments.

Physical Rehabilitation is not only for pets with health concerns. For working and sporting dogs, it will improve their performance by improving strength and endurance. It does improve the quality of life of geriatric patients by relieving pain and making them more flexible and strong.

What is a Rehabilitation-trained veterinarian?

img_0110

A rehabilitation-trained veterinarian has advanced training, expertise, and most important experience, in the diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal and neurological injuries and illnesses causing pain and loss of function.

The rehabilitation-trained veterinarian is the leader of a health care team often comprised of registered veterinary technicians, physical therapists and therapist assistants. This team provides the needed therapy to achieve maximum restoration of quality of life. Of primary importance in the rehabilitation process is the management of pain.
