Because There’s More to Recovery Than Rest
Companion animals, like their humans, can benefit from physical rehabilitation to recover from joint and muscle trauma, orthopedic and neurological surgeries, geriatric wellness, weight loss and strength training programs.
Physical rehabilitation is an essential tool in veterinary medicine for many purposes, such as reducing pain and inflammation, improving mobility and function, neuromuscular re-education and increasing the overall comfort of your pet while recovering from injury, surgery, and many other conditions.

giving your pet a head start
Physical rehabilitation is a key element in catalyzing post-operative or post-injury recovery time. Rehabilitation is also associated with decreasing the degree of muscle atrophy, stiffness, and the decline in range of motion that many pets experience from long periods of crate rest without activity. By choosing to engage in our rehab program, you are giving your pet a head start to a full and speedy recovery.
Target Recovery with Laser Therapy
Laser therapy is a non-invasive, painless process that utilizes light to stimulate cells and increase blood flow, which can enhance tissue growth and reduce inflammation. Sessions are short and often done in conjunction with physical therapy exercises as well. Laser therapy has been effective in treating soft tissue damage, reducing pain and inflammation associated with arthritic changes, and increasing cell growth.
