What is canine rehabilitation?
Canine rehabilitation uses the same techniques as human physical therapy to decrease pain, increase mobility, speed up recovery, improve endurance, maintain function, promote weight loss, and enhance the quality of life of the pet. Often since our pets cannot speak to us their minor aches and pains go unnoticed until they are no long able to do the things they were once able to do. (i.e. Jump onto the couch or run around the yard for up to 20 minutes) Whether or not they are at this point or beginning to experience this we can make their daily life more enjoyable and provide them with the comfort they deserve. To do this we employ a variety of different modalities such as manual therapies(Stretching, massage, joint mobilizations), therapeutic exercises, pain management, regenerative medicine, neuromuscular/transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, holistic treatments(acupuncture and chiropractics), and home exercise plans.
Through trained hands and diagnostics we are able to diagnose your pet’s ailments and create a plan to return them to function. Dr. Ray is a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist (CCRT) through the canine rehab institute. If you have any questions or want to set up a consultation for your pet please call and speak with Dr. Ray Spragley.
