In humans, physical therapy is widely used to help people recover from trauma, surgeries, illnesses, arthritis, obesity and other problems. We use similar techniques to help animals recover from many of the same conditions.
There are a number of therapies that can be used. The underwater treadmill is one method. We also can use or recommend therapeutic exercises, agility techniques, theraband limb work, exercise balls, proprioception equipment, or therapeutic clothing. We work with the animal and the owner to design a program that will work best for them.
