Veterinary Rehab and Pain Management Services
During this first consultation, Dr. Rick Wall will discuss with you the pain management and rehabilitation treatments appropriate to your pet’s condition. Your pet’s medical records and radiographs can assist him in determining the causes of pain and restricted mobility. After Dr. Wall’s evaluation, we create an individualized treatment plan to address and remedy your pet’s specific condition.
Veterinary Pain Management
We aggressively address pain with both pharmaceutical therapies and techniques in non-surgical rehabilitation. We use pain examination techniques to first localize and identify the patient’s pain. Once we know the location of the pain, we then use diagnostic tests to determine its cause—the so-called “pain generators”.
Pain is complex, and the more established pain is, the more difficult it is to manage. This complexity often results in a failure to recognize and treat the cause of the pain, which produces a cycle of chronic pain, suffering and decreased quality of life. A complex problem requires a complex solution.
We use physical rehabilitation to treat disabilities caused by a physical impairment that is often the result of orthopedic or neurologic injury and disease. Our veterinary rehabilitation experts have experience and knowledge in many disciplines, including orthopedics, neurology, myology (the study of muscles and muscle tissue), biomechanics (the principles of mechanics as applied to living organisms), and pain management.
Postoperative rehabilitation is very important for CCL patients, especially canine athletes.
Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS) is a painful condition that results from the presence of sensitive areas within the muscles.
We consider it our mission and our challenge to make all pets with spinal cord and peripheral nerve injury walk again!
The goal for our orthopedic patients is to reverse the disability they experience because of an orthopedic injury.
We offer veterinary care in the field of sports medicine. Our team develops a customized treatment plan based on your pet’s diagnosis, abilities, and limitations.
Conservative Rehabilitation Therapy
Conservative therapy consists of rest, anti-inflammatory medications, exercise and in certain cases, weight loss.
We also offer regenerative medicine, custom orthotic braces, and more.
