Dog Physical Therapy
Noninvasive techniques for the rehabilitation of injuries.
Brought to you by The Original Dog Bible
This is the use of noninvasive techniques other than veterinary chiropractic for the rehabilitation of injuries. These techniques include stretching; massage; stimulation by use of low-level lasers, electrical sources, magnetic fields, and ultrasound; rehabilitative exercises; hydrotherapy; and applications of heat and cold. Veterinary physical therapy should be performed by a licensed veterinarian or, if allowed by state law, a licensed, certified, or registered veterinary or animal health technician educated in veterinary physical therapy or a licensed physical therapist educated in animal anatomy and physiology.
