Massage & Manual Therapy
Massage and manual therapy techniques include mobilization of extremity joints and spine, soft tissue mobilization, and myofascial release. These techniques help to regain normal joint function, provide relief for tired and stressed muscles and help your pet build the needed muscle to return to normal daily life after injury or surgery.
Positive Biological Effects: increased circulation, improved range of motion, enhanced soft tissue mobility
Microcurrent massage may be used for geriatric dogs with elbow and hip conditions as part of a continued pain management plan. With this treatment, a low volt, undetected current is attached to the therapist’s arm and to the patient with the current running through the therapist’s fingertips to facilitate soft tissue pain relief.
