At LakeCross Veterinary Hospital in Huntersville, we provide physical therapy in the form of exercises that are designed to increase the range of motion in a joint or limb by carefully and gradually stretching the muscles and tendons.
Our team works with injured pets to help restore pain-free mobility through individualized exercise programs developed to meet specific needs.
Passive Range of Motion (PROM) and stretching activities help promote and maintain muscle, tendon, and ligament flexibility.
Therapeutic exercises improve the movement of synovial fluid, reducing enzymes that break down cartilage, thus promoting healthier joints.
We use a variety of therapeutic exercises at LakeCross Veterinary Hospital to reintroduce healthy movement including treadmills, balance boards, physioball exercises, circling, cavalettis, surface variation, changing incline/hills, and stair climbing.
Our vets will work with your pets to increase their mobility and reduce the pain associated with inflamed joints and degeneration.
