Physical rehabilitation is the diagnosis and management of patients with painful or functionally limiting conditions, particularly those with injury or illness related to the neurologic and musculoskeletal systems. The goal of rehabilitation is to achieve the highest level of function, independence and quality of life possible for the patient. At West Delray Veterinary, we incorporate non-invasive rehabilitation modalities into our practices to accomplish better, safer clinical outcomes.
At West Delray Veterinary we make every effort to go above and beyond for each and every patient and client. We believe that integrative medicine — the practice of complementing conventional medicine with alternative therapies like rehabilitation medicine — improves our ability to meet our clients’ and patients’ individual needs, and yields better therapeutic outcome.
We offer the following rehabilitation therapies:
Therapeutic exercise works to promote strength, balance, coordination, proprioception (spatial awareness), and fitness.
Manual Therapy, such as joint mobilizations, passive range of motion, stretching, and musculoskeletal adjustments, helps to decrease adhesions and improve flexibility.
Laser therapy is often utilized in our rehabilitation plans to treat pain, inflammation, soft tissue injuries
Heat promotes vasodilation, improving blood to an area that reduces muscle spasms while decreasing pain and improving flexibility.
Soft Tissue Manipulation, or massage, improves circulation and delivers nutrients and oxygen to the essential tissues for healing.
Therapeutic Ultrasound uses sound waves to improve the joint’s range of motion by reducing adhesions within the joint.
Electrotherapy uses low electrical current to promote muscle contraction and target the motor neurons, re-educating the muscle fibers to reduce atrophy.
