Therapeutic Exercise

Therapeutic exercise can provide a wide range of benefits for veterinary rehabilitation patients. It can be used to increase range of motion, flexibility, endurance, strength, and proprioception. Exercise can help dogs recover more quickly from surgical procedures or injuries, promote functional independence, and keep canine athletes at peak performance levels.  Many therapeutic exercise options can be used in canine rehabilitation — exercises that increase joint mobility, flexibility, strength, and endurance. Ultimately, however, the skills and training of the therapist are what bring the benefits of therapeutic exercise to canine patients.
