Why does my pet need physical rehabilitation?


For certain neurological conditions such as fibrocartilaginous embolism (FCE), degenerative myelopathy, and polyneuropathy, physical rehabilitation is the cornerstone of therapy. Physical rehabilitation may also be recommended after spinal surgery or, in certain cases, as an alternative to surgery. Our veterinary neurologists will work with you to decide when and where physical rehabilitation is recommended.
