Swedish Massage: Massage relieves tension in muscles and stimulates muscle development. It helps speed up recovery from injuries and surgical procedures by increasing blood flow and relieving muscle spasms. Passive range of motion (PROM) is accomplished through flexion and extension of the joint to its limits. PROM is used to encourage your dog to use the full range of motion of their joints. Therapeutic Exercises: Makes use of equipment designed to strengthen weak muscles and build up limbs affected by atrophy. These exercises include balancing on rocker boards and balance boards. Your pet is forced to place weight on the surgical repair, building muscle in the affected area and increasing coordination. Hydro-Therapy: Uses water as a tool to improve muscle and joint function. Hydrostatic pressure reduces pain during their exercise. Dogs which are immobile on land can "walk" or swim freely in the water due to the buoyancy and viscosity that supports them. Swimming allows your pet to work several muscles at once while stretching further than walking on land would allow. Underwater tredmill provides the benefits of land exercises while decreasing the weight placed on the patients limbs. Canine Hydrotherapy is extremely effective in improving muscle strength, endurance, cardio respiratory endurance, range of motion and agility. I has a direct effect on the heart rate and oxygen intake. This also aids in weight reduction and toning of your pet.
