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.
