Rehabilitation Evaluations- Orthopedic

By Cathryn Adolph, LVT, CCRP, CCFT

Limb measurements (aka muscle mass) measurements are taken during an initial evaluation.

Our rehabilitation evaluations involve an extensive physical examination designed to assess your pet from an orthopedic, muscular and neurological standpoint. We do this by assessing your pet’s posture, gait, joints, reflexes, and muscles (soft tissue).  This evaluation is quite comprehensive, so we will be covering it in detail over the next several entries. Today we will cover how we evaluate your pet orthopedically.
