Canine Myofunctional, Rehabilitation & Conditioning Therapies!

 

Canine Myofunctional Therapies is a muscle and soft tissue therapy and incorporating the multi-modality approach of Canine Rehabilitation and Conditioning Therapies, helps your pet to achieve overall muscle, fascia, joint, tendon and ligament optimal health, balance, performance and well-being!

 

As a Clinical Therapist applying the hands-on multi-modality approach, we can help to improve on Neuro-Muscular Dysfunction, improve Proprioception & Body Awareness and help to re-train for correct Gait Patterns.

Applying varying Clinical Massage Therapy Techniques, our aim is to help move and eliminate toxins and waste products within the bodies soft tissues, improve blood and lymphatic flow to improve circulation, decompress affected nerves and nerve bundles, remove any edema or swelling accumulating within a joint, reduce inflammation, improve joint range of motion, improve muscle suppleness, release muscle spasms by reducing the reactive trigger points found within the muscle belly and/or fascia tissues, reduce muscle adhesion's, lengthen muscle and ligament fibres and improving their elasticity, improve bone density and immune function - All of these benefits combined help to reduce your pet's pain whether it has been caused by an acute injury which required surgery or perhaps a strain issue from an accident or perhaps it's been caused by a more chronic and debilitating disease process such as Degenerative Joint Disease or Osteoarthritis.

 

From your Canine Athlete or Working dog to your more relaxed pupper who loves their snuggle time with you - no matter their age or reason for their body dysfunction, they can all suffer from muscle tautness, muscle, tendon and ligamentous contractures, inflammation, trigger points and edema, all resulting in a reduced range of motion to their affected joints and all of which can be the cause for your pet to change the way they move, shift their body weight to compensate area's of dysfunction, change their gait patterns and they generally will use their bodies incorrectly which can cause future issues and/or injuries unless we help by teaching them in  fun and reward based therapy sessions to how to better use their bodies more correctly by performing Rehabilitation Conditioning Exercises and retraining them with specialised fitness equipment in the hopes of helping to reduce the chances of any further injuries or pain.

If your pet requires medications, that's all fine as Jules is a qualified Veterinary Nurse and is proficient at administering any form of medication needed.

If you have a pet with Diabetes - this too is not a problem as dietary intake and your pets health will be closely monitored daily to ensure your pet is relaxed, happy and eating normally - a good management plan is vital for these kiddos.
