Just like humans, our furry friends can greatly benefit from the results of physical therapy and rehabilitation. At Healing Hands 4 Paws we provide comprehensive, customized treatment plans that utilize positive reinforcement and a relaxed environment to help get your pet back to living a happy, healthy, and active lifestyle.
Physical therapy and rehabilitation can be beneficial in treating a variety of conditions including, but not limited to:

  • Post-operative care
  • Post-trauma
  • Obesity and metabolic conditions
  • Degenerative myelopathy
  • Cruciate ligament injury
  • Intervertebral disc disease

Our highly trained staff is well equipped to provide your pet the best veterinary care. Our advanced equipment allows us to provide ideal treatment to achieve your pet’s full recovery. We pride ourselves in staying up to date with the newest developments in veterinary medicine and technology. From our state-of-the-art underwater treadmill to our electrical stimulation and laser therapies, we have something for every pet!

Our underwater treadmill is highly effective in the healing process following surgery or traumatic injury. Water provides support and stability, allowing your pet to perform proper movement while relieving normal pressure and weight strain in the joints. The underwater treadmill also promotes weight loss and muscle building for animals in our weight management and athletic conditioning programs. Electrical stimulation has been shown to relieve pain, reduce muscle atrophy, minimize swelling, and promote healing in both open and closed wounds, while laser therapies have been shown to be exceptionally helpful in combating chronic issues.

In addition to our advanced medical technology, we also specialize in massage therapy, therapeutic exercises, fitting orthotics or other mobility assistance tools, and home care programs. We help develop treatments that you can continue at home once in-office therapy is no longer necessary. It is extremely important to maintain therapy efforts for you pet to regain full function, mobility, and vitality.

Therapy treatments often consist of two to three scheduled appointments per week and typically span over several weeks. Your pet will receive first-class care from our team of doctors, therapists, and technicians who will also work to teach you helpful habits and tips for maintaining your pet’s progress. Consistency and dedication are essential for your pet to receive the full benefits from rehabilitation. We offer drop-off options as well as evening appointments to accommodate our patients with tricky schedules. Payment options are available as well.

Overall, physical therapy and rehabilitation have extensive benefits as they:

  • Promote faster healing
  • Minimize pain
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Increase circulation
  • Promote strength and flexibility
  • Increase mobility
  • Improve quality of life
