The benefits of physical therapy in human medicine and surgery have been recognized and utilized for decades. The key goals of physical therapy for humans are to restore and maintain/maximize strength, function, movement, and overall well being. With the advancement of animal medicine, we are now able to use these same principles on our pets. Whether your pet is suffering from chronic pain, recovering from surgery, or managing a neurological condition, rehabilitation can greatly increase and help to regain your pet’s quality of life.
Applecross Veterinary Hospital provides a multimodal approach to its rehabilitative practice. Our rehabilitation services are led by Dr. Westworth, who is certified in canine rehab through the University of Tennessee. After your pet’s initial assessment with her, she will tailor a program to help treat your pet’s specific ailment. The rehabilitative staff at Applecross Vet strongly believe that animal rehabilitation is imperative to help heal, strengthen and prevent further injuries in your pet.
