Our goal is to help our mutual clients and patients with pain management and rehabilitation therapy. This involves a multifaceted approach which may include complete musculoskeletal,
neurological, and functional ability examination. Measurements will be taken to obtain objective data to evaluate outcome measures as the patient progresses with therapy. Treatment plans and therapeutic modalities will be based on patient’s condition, ability, owner’s goals and availability for rehab therapy. The client will be educated on nutrition in association with weight loss goals or joint protection and pain relief. The client will be educated on home exercise programs to help reach and maintain goals. The client will be educated on braces or orthotics, wheelchairs and other patient comfort options such as Help ‘Em up harness or toe grips, etc. To do the best job possible for the dog, a clinical diagnosis is preferred. If a clinical diagnosis is not made prior to referral, the appropriate diagnostics (relating to pain and dysfunction) may be requested. This may include: Radiographs, complete orthopedic examination under sedation, musculoskeletal ultrasound.
When appropriate send results to: firstname.lastname@example.org
