What is Canine Rehabilitation?

Lucky Dog Rehabilitation is currently available through

veterinarian referral only 
For ID residents: Clinicians with a current ID physical therapy license can accept referrals from ID-licensed veterinarians as an allied health professional.  
For WY residents: Clinicians with a physical therapy background can accept referrals from veterinarians with whom they have an established, working relationship.  Lucky Dog Rehabilitation, when working on animals in WY, are not working under their Wyoming Physical Therapy licenseHowever, ALL therapists maintain their own professional liability insurance. 

We use equipment that is similar to what you would find in your physical therapist's gym...except we bring it to you. Theraballs and therabands, a peanut ball, the BOSU, blocks/wobble boards/dyna discs, Airex foam pad and cavaletti poles may be incorporated into your dogs rehab program. Portable modalities include a therapeutic ultrasound unit, electrical stimulation units for NMES (muscle stimulation) or TENS (pain control), as well as a Class III B laser.

 Canine rehabilitation is similar to physical therapy for humans.  It uses the skilled hands of educated practitioners to provide joint mobilizations, therapeutic massage, trigger point and myofascial release, as well as specialized therapeutic exercise to help improve quality of movement, decrease pain, and restore normal movement. It may also use therapeutic modalities such as electrical stimulation, therapeutic ultrasound, cryotherapy, heat or laser to provide pain control, increase circulation, prevent muscle atrophy, or decrease inflammation.
