What is Medical Massage Therapy for Pets?

Medical massage therapy is a form of therapy that uses various techniques to manipulate the soft tissues of the body to improve function and reduce pain. It can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, hip dysplasia, and other musculoskeletal disorders. It is also used to help pets recover from surgery or injury.

Benefits of Medical Massage Therapy for Pets

Medical massage therapy can provide many benefits for your pet, including:

  • Improved mobility and flexibility
  • Reduced pain and inflammation
  • Increased circulation
  • Improved range of motion
  • Reduced muscle spasms
  • Increased endorphin release
  • Improved digestion
  • Improved immune function
  • Reduced anxiety and stress
Medical massage therapy can also help to improve the overall quality of life for your pet. Whether your pet is dealing with a chronic condition or recovering from an injury, medical massage therapy can help to reduce their pain and discomfort, allowing them to enjoy their life to the fullest.

What to Expect from a Medical Massage Session

At East & West Animal Hospital, we will work with you and your pet to develop an individualized treatment plan. The initial consultation will include a thorough assessment of your pet's condition, including a physical examination and discussion of your pet's history and symptoms.

During the massage session, your pet will be positioned comfortably on a table or mat. We will use a variety of techniques, including petrissage, effleurage, and friction, to manipulate the soft tissues of the body. The massage therapist will also use gentle stretching and range-of-motion exercises to help improve flexibility and mobility.

After the massage session, your pet may be a little sore or tired, but this is normal and should resolve quickly. You will also be given recommendations for at-home care, such as exercises or stretches that you can do with your pet to help maintain the benefits of massage therapy.
