Modalities Therapeutic Exercise accommodating your pet's needs

Veterinary Modalities & Therapeutic Exercises in West Chester

The term modality refers to the application of a therapeutic agent. This may include electrotherapeutic modalities such as laser therapy, TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation), or NMES (Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation) or thermal modalities such as superficial heat or cold or, finally, manual therapy techniques such as massage, stretching, or joint mobilization.  All of the above techniques are utilized in rehabilitation at Pfister Animal Hospital.  

How Therapeutic Exercises Help Your Pet Thrive

In addition to these modalities, a variety of therapeutic exercises are prescribed.  This includes any exercise where the pet is actively moving joints and muscles.  

The following are the main goals of these exercises: 

  • Improve active, pain-free range of motion.
  • Improve the use of limbs and reduce lameness.
  • Improve muscle mass and strength.
  • Improve daily function.
  • Help prevent further injury.

As a pet owner, you will play a key role in this part of your pet's rehabilitation on a daily basis; therefore, you need to be prepared to be fully committed to performing prescribed exercises at home.
