Orthopedics and Rehabilitation
Orthopedics tends to be a specialty that not many veterinarians practice, but here at Plymouth Veterinary Clinic we have a doctor that specializes in ACL repairs. We not only repair ACLs but aid in the total recovery process with laser treatments and physical rehabilitation. If you have any other questions feel free to contact the clinic and we can begin the consultation process!
Physical Rehabilitation is a branch of medicine that aims to enhance and restore functional ability and quality of life to those with physical impairments or disabilities. You may be wondering who could benefit from physical rehabilitation. Neurological, orthopedic, arthritic, working animals, geriatric, and weight management pets are all conditions that could benefit.
Physical rehabilitation can improve strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination; it can increase function and mobility of joints and muscles, and can slow the progression of disease leading to an enhancement in mobility and better quality of life for your pet. Each session includes various types of exercise with the appropriate equipment, specific to your pet's diagnosis and needs. We take pride in including you in your pet's rehabilitation and exercises, as we believe you are an integral part of each step along the way in your dog's rehab program. Canine rehab requires a team effort, and without your dedication, it would be a less successful process.
Laser therapy has a broad range of uses in veterinary medicine, from expanding surgical options, to promoting wound and tissue healing, to enhancing physical therapy results.
