Massage therapy focuses on restoring a pet’s mobility when dealing with discomfort related to aging, orthopedic issues, or sport-related injury.
Massage therapy is a form of treatment to help any pet that is dealing with minor pain and loss of mobility. Mobility can be negatively impacted by the aging process, orthopedic conditions, as well as sport related injuries. Massage therapy seeks to restore both comfort and mobility by eliminating the negative effects of the aforementioned conditions.
Veterinary massage therapy could be beneficial to your pet for a number of reasons. This treatment is typically used to help combat both acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries, and can be used alongside other forms of treatment. If your pet is suffering from a recent injury, massage therapy could be used as a form of rehabilitation to help boost your pet’s mobility and stimulate healing in the affected areas.
If your pet is in noticeable discomfort, or just not moving and enjoying life the way that they used to, then massage therapy for your pet might be worth considering. As a popular form of rehabilitation, this treatment has been used to combat orthopedic issues as well as sport-related injuries for the more athletic pet. Additionally, massage therapy has been used to help senior animals who are suffering from a loss of mobility, a natural occurrence of the aging process.
Your pet will be treated by our certified massage therapist, who is educated on both your pet’s anatomy and their present physical condition. Therapy typically begins with a pain and mobility assessment. During this initial stage, your pet will be assessed for any abnormalities that could be impacting their condition. Once the condition of your pet has been properly assessed, treatment will begin by massaging the affected areas of your pet's body. The duration of treatment can vary depending on the condition of your pet. It is recommended for your pet to undergo a series of treatments in order to fully benefit and regain their mobility more effectively.
