an example of rehabilitation after TPLO surgery


Pickles came to us after his TPLO surgery in summer 2018 on his right stifle, he was not properly weight bearing on his hind, limped and showed a severe volume discrepancy in his hind legs.

The left picture showed him after one of his first sessions while the right picture shows him after his 6th session.

Not only did Pickles learn how to swim, he now displays a significant increase in his thigh muscle volume on both sides and equal weight bearing. Gentle stretching and massaging during lap breaks keep the muscles tone balanced and the exercise appropriate and fun!
