Our therapeutic exercise programs (both in-house and home-based) can be one of the most important aspects of a rehabilitation plan. Each program is designed specifically for individual pets and their particular conditions. These programs may involve Passive Range of Motion (PROM) and/or stretching exercises to increase–and then maintain–joint mobility and flexibility. We may also prescribe proprioceptive exercises, which help to improve the animal's balance. Examples of these can include weight-shifting exercises, walking on different surfaces or inclines, and using balance boards or balls to help the animal re-learn where their limbs are in space. Depending on your animal's specific needs, we may use additional techniques and equipment to create exercises for strengthening, endurance, or weight loss. Many of these exercises (PROM/stretching/massage) can also be performed in the therapeutic setting of the underwater treadmill.
