Canine rehabilitation is physio services for your dog offered to you by an animal rehab trained, registered physiotherapist. At CanineTech Rehab our services are provided by a registered physiotherapist with over 10 years of experience as a human physiotherapist. Dogs suffer from similar injuries as their owners and thus are being offered expert treatment for conditions causing pain and dysfunction.

Our approach to canine rehab follows the same principles as human physiotherapy. The assessment of your dog will focus on identifying the underlying cause and contributing factors to their injury or condition. This approach will enable us to treat your dog in the most effective way. Appropriate exercises, manual therapy and modalities will be combined to improve the course of their recovery.

At CanineTech Rehab we strive for ongoing communication and cooperation with you and your veterinarian to ensure the best care possible.

The Animal Rehab Division (ARD) of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA) has been advocating for registered physiotherapists to be the professionals of choice to provide animal rehabilitation. The ARD provides education for physiotherapists, as well as communication between animal rehab therapists to provide the best care for your animals. The ARD follows the ethical guidelines of the CPA and values the inter-relationships between the animal, animal owner/guardian, veterinarian and other animal health care providers.

Our CanineTech Vision

  • Providing animal rehabilitation from experienced, manual therapy physiotherapists.
  • To educate the public on the availability of physiotherapists providing canine rehabilitation.

Canine Arthritis

Many people assume arthritis is a condition for older, large breed dogs, however dogs of any age, size and breed can be affected by arthritic joints especially if they have sustained an injury during their growth period. Osteoarthritis or degenerative joint disease is a breakdown in the smooth cartilage that protects the ends of the bones in a joint. Once the cartilage has worn-out, and the bones are no longer protected, pain and inflammation of the joint occurs and movement of the joint becomes limited and painful.
