Rehabilitation therapy addresses orthopedic injuries, neurologic dysfunction, chronic osteoarthritis, geriatric concerns, and performance difficulties. Whether your pet needs assistance in recuperating from trauma, surgery, degenerative joint disease, or chronic pain, the Woodlands Animal Care Center in Farmington, PA is available to provide an individualized treatment plan.
The services offered are geared to maximize function, reduce pain and inflammation, and slow the progression of orthopedic and neuromuscular disease.
Aquatic Bioelectric Therapy
Aquatic Bioelectric Therapy uses the natural properties of water (buoyancy, resistance and heat) to reduce recovery time up to 50-60% and accelerates the condition for improved performance. These water properties are joined with electro-medical therapy which stimulates muscles to contract and strengthen. This combination provides a dramatic reduction in pain and healing time.
The underwater treadmill provides resistance while decreasing gravity to strengthen the limbs. It can be used to treat many musculoskeletal conditions and provides a safe, controlled environment for gait analysis, exercise, and muscle building.
Low-level Laser Therapy
Our cold laser therapy uses infrared light energy to stimulate healing and decrease inflammation at the cellular level. The laser allows for fast pain relieve and improved healing times for everything from minor injuries and surgical incisions to large grade trauma.
Therapeutic massage and exercise can be used to preserve range of motion and muscle mass and to challenge healing tissue times during recovery. Some of our techniques include using Theraband limb work, exercise balls, proprioception equipment and therapeutic clothing.
Canine Pain Management
We offer complete patient assessments, short and long term analgesia planning, and other integrative therapies.
