Post-Surgical Rehabilitation

Early rehabilitation (flexing and stretching of muscles) can significantly improve the quality of recovery for both postsurgical patients and their owners. It can help in pain management, relaxation, core stability and in building and maintaining muscle mass. Rehabilitation is appropriate for all dogs after an orthopedic surgery. Some of the benefits include:

  • Reduce pain
  • Promote the healing process
  • Restore and maintain range of joint motion and normal movement patterns
  • Build muscle mass during recovery from injury or surgery
  • Allow safe and controlled activity during the recovery period
  • Increase cardiovascular fitness
  • Improve quality of life
