Therapeutic Ultrasound - Sound waves that produce a deep heat. This deep heat can be an effective treatment for many different issues--muscle tears, sprains and strains, muscle spasm or contracture, tendon calcification to name a few. Deep heat not only relaxes the muscle but helps to decrease scar tissue, inflammation, pain, and muscle spasm. At the same time, it increases collagen order and circulation, as well as enzyme activity. Therapeutic ultrasound is an effective tool to aid in the facilitation of healing.

Laser Therapy - Cold laser uses light energy to help stimulate cells to produce more energy to speed healing. It also reduces swelling and nerve signaling of pain.

Hydrotherapy via Underwater Treadmill – Hydrotherapy using our underwater treadmill is used to treat a variety of conditions, from post-surgery patients needing to regain mobility and gain muscle to older dogs needing to build strength. The water supports the weight of the patient but the muscles, even at a slow walk, get an intense workout. This workout is 3 to 5 times harder than land exercise, so muscle gain is quicker to help support healing or otherwise compromised joint. The warm water soothes aching muscle and improves circulation.

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) - A TENS unit can be helpful for mild to moderate pain relief for acute or chronic conditions.

Veterinary Spinal Manipulation Therapy (VSMT) aka Chiropractic - Restores motion and reprograms the muscles neurologically so muscles work together in a more harmonious and comfortable manner.

Sports Massage - Massage is manual manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques. We occasionally recommend this to enhance function, aid in the healing process, and promote relaxation and well-being.

Joint Mobilizations - Joint mobilizations are used primarily when the joints are tight and not doing their job. Advanced mobilizations are performed here, but some can be taught to be done at home.

Braces, Splints, & Carts – Braces and splints are custom-made and professionally fit and adjusted by our rehab veterinarians.

Therapeutic Exercise - Every patient at our clinic receives customized therapeutic exercises that are taught to be done at home. These exercises are a vital part of your pet’s comprehensive treatment plan.

Acupuncture - This is used primarily for pain relief and nerve regeneration. Acupuncture may be defined as the insertion of needles into specific points on the body to cause a desired healing effect. This technique has been used in veterinary practice in China for at least 3000 years to treat many ailments. Acupuncture is indicated mainly for functional problems that involve paralysis, inflammation, and pain. In addition, regular acupuncture treatment can treat minor sports injuries as they occur and help to keep muscles and tendons resistant to injury.

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy - Shockwave Therapy is an acoustic wave which causes a rise and fall in tissue pressure in the treatment area. It has a direct physical effect and a biological (indirect) effect. The energy delivered is measured in joules per mm2. Different energy levels are delivered depending on the tissues being treated, the number of treatments needed, and the condition being treated. Effects of shockwave therapy include improving blood supply, changing inflammation, reducing pain, and stimulating healing via growth factors. Traditional shockwave units are very effective in treating tendon disorders and joint pain (epicondylitis and plantar fasciitis in people) but can be very uncomfortable and noisy. Our treatment unit is a piezowave focused machine which is less noisy and causes minimal discomfort during treatment. We use it to treat tendon issues and arthritis pain.

Prolotherapy - This involves injecting an otherwise non active irritant solution into the body, generally in the region of tendons or ligaments for the purpose of strengthening weakened connective tissue and eliminating musculoskeletal pain.

PrP Therapy - Platelet rich plasma therapy offers a promising solution to accelerate healing of tendon injuries and osteoarthritis naturally without subjecting the patient to significant risk. It promotes anti-inflammatory effects, pain reduction, and simultaneously stimulating repair.

Trigger Point therapy - This therapy utilizes acupuncture needles in a different manner to relieve spasmd muscles. Instead of using particular meridians, trigger point therapy is the placement of a needle directly into an isolated spasm, affecting just a small patch of muscle tissue.

PEMF therapy bed - Pulsing electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF) is a safe, non-invasive, FDA- approved therapy which easily penetrates into sore joints and muscles, relieving pain, reducing swelling, and stimulating healing. Sessions last approximately 30 minutes.

Canine Exercise & Conditioning Program - Our Canine Exercise & Conditioning Program is designed for uninjured, active dogs, sporting and competition dogs, or dogs who are simply not receiving enough walks or quality exercise at home (this is especially helpful during winter months). Active dogs are kept strong and conditioned--important for preventing injury and gaining a competitive edge. Couch potatoes or dogs who are bouncing off the walls with excess energy will find a physically and mentally stimulating outlet that will make them fitter than ever. Studies show exercise in an underwater treadmill is approximately three times the intensity of the same performance on land, so these workouts are intense! ... read more
