Rehabilitation and Bowen Therapy

In human medicine Physical Therapy and therapeutic exercise have long been included as an integral part of rehabilitation for conservatively and surgically treated patients including orthopaedic and neurological disorders.

These valuable treatment tools have also gained entry into Veterinary Medicine in recent years.

The proven benefits of physical therapy for dogs and cats have been demonstrated in numerous clinical studies.

Modern clinical and scientific works have established physical therapy as a serious method of therapeutics that makes an important contribution not only to post operative rehabilitation but also pain management and conservative therapy.
