Meridian Animal Clinic is proud to offer rehabilitation services to patients in the Meridian, Mississippi area. Rehabilitation medicine uses non-invasive treatments such as massage, exercise, light, and laser therapy, among others, to rehabilitate injured animals and restore them to their normal function as quickly as possible.
Recent research has shown that the least effective treatment for injury is excessive rest. Therefore, rehabilitation efforts concentrate on stimulating the injured area using various treatments that increase circulation, promote healing, reduce inflammation, and reduce pain.
The ultimate goal of rehabilitation is to restore the full range of movement and strength to injured body parts.
Rehabilitation medicine has been used for some time to promote the healing of horses and is more recently being used in the treatment of dogs.
