Paw Mobility provides canine rehabilitation to improve mobility and function in dogs so they can return to daily activities. Services are provided either in our clinic in Rowley, MA, which has an underwater treadmill, or in clients’ homes for ease of access for those dogs that have difficulty traveling.
I hold a Doctorate of Physical Therapy, have completed The University of Tennessee’s Certified Canine Rehabilitation program, and have had extensive training in the field of canine rehabilitation. Physical therapists manage movement dysfunction and improve functional abilities by restoring, maintaining, and promoting optimal physical function.
At Paw Mobility, a thorough evaluation is completed to determine what impairments are present that are leading to the movement dysfunction. Then an individualized treatment plan is developed that will include hands-on techniques, exercises, therapeutic modalities, and education. Home exercise programs are taught to the owners and are progressed as tolerated.
The Massachusetts Board of Registration in Veterinary Medicine allows for veterinarians to work with physical therapists as long as a referral is completed. If any medical issues or concerns arise during the duration of treatment, then the veterinarian will be contacted.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns that you have.
