In 2010, the American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation reached provisional recognition from the American Board of Veterinary Specialties for full rights and responsibilities of a veterinary specialty to develop and grow the College.
Veterinary sports medicine, a cornerstone of rehabilitation, is used to treat disorders of the musculoskeletal and/or neurologic systems as well as in patients who need conditioning and/or weight loss. Each session includes various types of exercise using appropriate equipment tailored to the patient’s specific diagnosis and needs. This modality can improve strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination, leading to improved mobility and better quality of life for your pet. This therapy may also be taught to an owner during a demonstration session in order for the owner to provide the benefits of therapeutic exercise outside of the clinic.
