Therapy

We all get tired, sore and creaky as we get older—or suffer sprains, strains, twists and other muscle or joint injuries. That includes pets, too.

Physical therapy techniques at Riverbark are beneficial for a variety of pets, including those recovering from surgery, canine athletes, hyperactive or overweight pets and older pets suffering from mobility problems, arthritis, neurological disease, athletic injury, or those pets needing to maintain and/or build conditioning muscles.

Pool

Riverbark is one of the few pet facilities in the country that offers resistance swimming in our SwimEx aquatic therapy pool, which reduces stress on joints, encourages free movement and allows for stretching and massage in warm water.

Underwater treadmill

Our underwater treadmill is very successful in treating a range of issues from post-surgery pain to muscle weakness in older animals. We can vary the water height, treadmill speed and walking direction to optimize and customize therapy for every dog.

Land treadmill

This treadmill is very similar to the ones humans use and provides a great workout to improve leg strength and cardiovascular endurance. Our inclining treadmill can treat a wide range of problems, such as gait abnormalities and muscle weakness.

Laser therapy

Low level laser therapy is very effective in treating pain and promoting healing by using light energy to penetrate tissue to stimulate the body’s repair mechanism. We also use electrical stimulation for muscle training and pain control.

Canine massage therapy

Canine massage therapy can help increase circulation, which leads to increased oxygenation in the bloodstream. This helps your dog perform at his or her best and can cut recuperation time in animals recovering from an injury or surgery.

Recreation

At Riverbark, we believe that regular recreation is just as important for pets as it is for humans. It not only helps physical conditioning, it improves psychological health, muscle tone, and the therapeutic benefits can help your pet develop into a happy, healthy, well-rounded companion.
