The Importance of Pet Manual Therapy

Pet manual therapy plays a crucial role in identifying and addressing musculoskeletal issues that may be affecting your pet’s mobility.

Key Components of Pet Manual Therapy

  • Joint Mobilization: We utilize specialized techniques to gently mobilize stiff or restricted joints, promoting an increased range of motion and reducing discomfort for your pet.
  • Trigger Point Management: Identification and management of trigger points areas of muscle tension or knots are crucial in restoring proper muscle function. By applying local compression to these points, we improve blood flow and alleviate muscle tension.
  • Addressing Osteophytes: Osteophytes, or arthritic bone spurs, can impede your pet’s ability to move freely. Through targeted manual therapy, we aim to improve joint function and prevent further degeneration, ultimately enhancing your pet’s quality of life.

Ensuring Your Pet’s Comfort During Treatment

Your pet’s comfort and well-being are our top priorities during manual therapy sessions. We carefully monitor your pet’s response to treatment, ensuring that each session is tailored to their individual needs and preferences. To promote relaxation, we often begin the session with the soothing aroma of lavender massage oil, creating a calming environment for your pet to enjoy their therapy experience.
