Canine Exercise Rehabilitation Series

- option to progress to Clinical Canine Exercise Rehabilitation Certificate

What is exercise rehabilitation?

A branch of Physiotherapy where the patient is rehabilitated through movement, specific exercises, strength training and gait retraining. It is where patients learn to walk again after neurological or orthopaedic surgery or during conservative management of a debilitating condition. It is where they regain their strength and confidence. Exercise rehabilitation is vital to ensure that patients have the very best chance of regaining quality of life, reducing the chance of further injury and pain. Correct exercise, delivered at the optimum time, can be the difference between a positive or negative outcome.

Team members such as the veterinary nurse and hydrotherapist, are perfectly placed to offer rehabilitation through exercise, as well as comprehensive advice to owners, to help ensure the patient has the very best chance of recovery.
