Physical Therapy
For Cat & Dog Pain Relief at Manchester Animal Hospital

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy has benefits for pets in several areas: to reduce pain, enhance healing, increase mobility, prevent disability, improve quality of life, and promote health and fitness.

Manchester Animal Hospital offers a variety of therapeutic treatments for pets recuperating from injury, managing chronic illness, or for enhancing mobility and athletic ability. We treat pets with many of the following concerns and conditions:

  • Arthritis
  • Chronic pain
  • Orthopedic injuries or conditions
  • Muscular injuries or conditions
  • Neurologic injuries or conditions
  • Obesity
  • Athletic conditioning
  • Fitness concerns

We assess the patient’s needs and develop a customized physical therapy treatment plan based on the type of injury or concern, age, physical condition, level of pain, and the pet owner’s goals. Our treatments include many of the most current modalities, including:

  • Therapeutic massage
  • Cold or heat treatment
  • Therapeutic ultrasound
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Exercise regimes

Your pet will be assessed for discomfort throughout the treatment process and provided with the appropriate pain management program. If needed, we are able to fit the patient with assistive devices and to counsel the pet owner on options and use.

Your pet should never suffer needlessly. Providing physical therapy in the proper amount at the right time can dramatically reduce, or even eliminate, long-term pain and suffering in companion animals.

Visit our Surgical page for information about orthopedic and soft tissue surgical procedures that may precede a recommendation for therapeutic services.
