Underwater treadmill sessions - keep moving through winter

Brooke Marsh - Wednesday, May 17, 2017

Due to popular demand we will now be offering UWT sessions with Anna. We recommend this in early post op phases or for ongoing management. Weight loss is also very effective in this supported, safe, and controlled environment with skilled practitioners designing their individual rehabilitation program. 

Research (Michelle Monk) has shown that after TPLO in CCL-deficient dogs, early physiotherapy intervention should be considered as part of the postoperative management to prevent muscle atrophy, build muscle mass and strength, and increase stifle joint flexion and extension ROMs. The first 6 weeks is the key. 

We will also offer packages for those who wish to attend more often. Throughout winter many dogs drop off with their exercise and rehabilitation. This is the most important time to keep older bones moving and our heated UWT is the best option for this. For more info contact Brooke 0408022660 and book in a session!

Developmental conditions in puppies

Brooke Marsh - Sunday, April 09, 2017

It is fantastic to be able to assess puppies for developmental orthopaedic conditions. This 11 week old corgi started physio today and is under further investigations for hip dysplasia. We hope to manage him conservatively to maximise his quality of life by implementing treatment and home management principles at home. Jack takes the cute award today!! Little champion in the uwt.

Can't get cuter!
