Rehabilitation is the use of therapeutic exercises combined with additional modalities such as hydrotherapy, laser and shockwave treatments to improve the patient outcome after serious orthopedic or neurological injuries. Furthermore, these treatments can be useful for any patient who is suffering from chronic pain, arthritis, obesity or muscle weakness.

  • Therapeutic Exercises
  • Underwater Treadmill “By December 2023”: Utilizes buoyancy, resistance, viscosity, and hydrostatic pressure of water to help with painful joints and limbs. Buoyancy works to create a weightless environment that alleviates pressure on joints and supports weak joints.
  • Electric Stimulation Therapy “By December 2023”: Electrotherapy can be used for wound healing, pain control or relief, reduction of inflammation, muscle re-education, reversal of atrophy and strengthening. This modality works at many levels, affecting both the sensory and motor nerves. At the cellular level, electrotherapy causes nerve cell excitation and changes in cell membrane permeability, therefore stimulating protein synthesis, osteosynthesis and fibroblast formation. At the tissue level, electrotherapy causes skeletal muscle and smooth muscle contraction. At the segmental level, it facilitates muscle-pumping action, resulting in improved joint mobility as well as circulatory and lymphatic drainage.
  • Laser Therapy “By February 2024”: Reduces inflammation by increasing vasodilation, activating the lymphatic drainage system, and reducing proinflammatory mediators.
  • Assisi Loops (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy) “By December 2023”: Works by emitting bursts of microcurrent electricity with creates a field which evenly penetrates both soft and hard body tissue around the target area.
  • Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) “By December 2024”: Employs admitting shockwaves to an area of the body. The high intensity sound waves interact with the tissue in the dog’s body resulting in the stimulation of blood vessels, reducing chronic inflammation, stimulating the production of collagen, and dissolving calcium buildups.
  • Platelet-Rich Plasma “By December 2024”: PRP is a form of regenerative medicine that has been proposed to treat inflammatory conditions that affect ligaments, muscles, and tendons, such as osteoarthritis. It may also help with bone regeneration after a bone fracture. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is derived from removing the red blood cells from whole blood and isolating platelets. A sample of blood is taken from a patient and then spun down in a centrifuge. The red blood cells are removed with a pipette and discarded. The left-over concentrate is called PRP which contains platelets and proteins that can then be used to promote healing and treat areas of inflammation in the body.
  • Stem Cell Treatment “By December 2024”: After a definitive diagnosis of the condition has been made and your pet has been selected as a suitable candidate, there are essentially three steps in stem cell therapy: The first involves the collection of fat from your pet. This procedure is typically performed while the patient is under anesthesia. Fat cells are most often taken from a small incision in the groin or shoulder region. The fat cells are then transferred to a specialized laboratory, where stem cells are obtained and concentrated. The final stage of treatment is injection of stem cells into the affected area, such as a hip, elbow, or knee joint. This step also generally requires some form of anesthesia for your pet. Most cases will be performed as an out-patient procedure. Other than rest and supportive measures, minimal special care is required after treatment.
