Range of Motion

Stretch

Range of Motion and Stretching Exercises are used to improve the motion available to a specific area of the body. Most animals can benefit from Range of Motion and Stretching exercises.

We often teach owners to do these exercises with their animals as part of a home program.

Passive Range of Motion
Careful, controlled movement of an affected area helps to prevent soft tissue contracture. Improvement in sensory awareness and blood flow are also noted. Passive range of motion can be assessed and performed
lying on the ground, while standing, or in the pool.

We also have equipment and techniques to improve active range
of motion and weight bearing tolerances.

 

(The treatment plan will be approved by the referring veterinarian before it's implementation.)
