Physical Rehabilitation -90 min Intake Appointment
Physical Rehabilitation Consultations are with Dr. Ilana Strubel, MA, DVM, CVSMT, CCRT (Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist) and include detailed information about your dog's physical structure, gait, and performance. You will have a better understanding of your dog's stucture and physical/medical handicaps (ie: Hip Dysplasia, Elbow Dysplasia, Cranial Cruciate Ligament Injury, etc) and you will be given custom exercise/fitness program to include land based exercises and swimming exercise as well as a plan of care to help ease your dog's pain, as well as increase strength, balance, and stamina. Physical rehabilitation and retraining is for both the dog who is in need of support for pet level of fitness or for the canine athlete wanting to improve performance or to return to full competition level fitness with retraining post surgery or injury.
Physical Rehabilitation - Re-evaluation 60 min
Physical Rehabilitation Re-evaluation appointments are with Dr. Ilana Strubel, MA, DVM, CVSMT, CCRT. These recheck appointments with the Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist are recommended at regular intervals to determine if your dog is making appropriate progress with his home exercises, rehab plan of care, and if he is ready to move up to the next phase of activity. We will determine what exercises are needed to improve his function, and when he can go back to non-restricted life activities, competition, or training. Re-evaluation appointments can help move your canine athlete from functional to competitive and help to prevent your dog from future re-injury.

Chiropractic Adjustment with Exam
Oftentimes a Chiropractic Adjustment is needed to relieve joint restrictions (called Subluxations) in the spine and other regions of the body to help restore normal joint range of motion and biomechanics. Chiropractic care can relieve pain and improve postural changes that can lead to physical handicaps if left untreated over time. If recommended, a Chiropractic Adjustment can be completed at the time of the Physical Rehabilitation Evaluation/ Veterinary Orthopedic/ Sports Medicine Chiropractic Consultations are with Dr. Ilana Strubel, DVM, CVSMT, CCRT
