Rehabilitation helps the healing process and allows your pet to return to his/her previous functional level faster and safer than without therapy. A typical session may include heat therapy, passive range-of-motion exercises and stretches, therapeutic exercises, hydrotherapy including underwater treadmill and/or therapy pool, cold laser therapy, neuromuscular electrostimulation or cryotherapy. We also customize conditioning programs for sporting dogs, which may incorporate many of the same techniques we use in rehabilitation programs.

Pulsed Signal Therapy is a non-surgical, painless therapy which offers significant reduction in pain in conjunction with an increase in mobility. It consists of pulsed signals transmitted into the joint to promote the repair of damaged cells and stimulate the normal repair and maintenance process. Animal Rehabilitation Facility is currently the only location in Michigan offering PST. Click here for more information.
Chiropractic care serves to maintain the bones of the spine and joints in proper alignment, thus allowing proper nerve signal transmission. Even a subtle change in alignment (subluxation) can affect the nervous system, local muscles, joints and even internal organ function. Chiropractic adjustment helps to relieve pain and improve nerve function, as well as preventing small problems from developing into larger issues. Click here for more information.
