Physical Rehabilitation at The Cabin Spa

K. Vet Animal Care has a separate, fully equipped, state-of-the-art facility for animal physical rehabilitation located at 761 South Main Street in Greensburg.   

What is Physical Rehabilitation?

Physical rehabilitation for pets is similar to physical therapy for humans. It’s a specialized form of treatment aimed at aiding recovery from injury or surgery, managing chronic pain, and improving overall mobility and function. By utilizing various therapeutic techniques, physical rehabilitation helps pets regain strength, flexibility, and independence.

Conditions Treated

Physical rehabilitation can be a game-changer for pets dealing with a range of conditions, including:

  • Post-Surgical Recovery: Speeds up healing and restores function post-surgery.
  • Arthritis: Alleviates joint pain and improves mobility.
  • Neurological Disorders: Aids in the recovery of nerve function and coordination.
  • Muscle and Ligament Injuries: Promotes healing and prevents further injury.
  • Gait Patterning: Treats the underlying cause to improve the gait. 
  • Weight Loss: Sheds excess pounds to improve overall health.
  • Cardiac Issues: Improves cardiovascular fitness, and enhances endurance.
  • Strength Training: targeted exercises to build muscle, enhance stability, and prevent injuries.
