What is rehabilitation and how it can help your animal

Filed under: Animal news — Tags: , , , , , , — Cynara @ 1:29 pm

physiotherapyRehabilitation is the restoration to the normality, or to the closest possible of her, in way and of function altered by some lesion type. That rehabilitation is made through techniques used as the acupuncture, physiotherapy and chiropractic (art of adjusting with the hands the sub-luxation of the articulations of the body).   

The rehabilitation includes the patients’ evaluation with functional limitations, incapacity and/or locomotion difficulties, pain, posture alterations, etc. After that evaluation accomplished by the specialist of the area, the treatment protocol is drawn.   

The animal rehabilitation is used since the decade of 80 in the United States and in Europe and it is usually used as main treatment before the conventional medicines and of the surgery. The animal is only directed for surgery if he doesn’t answer to the rehabilitation, and when submitted to the surgical procedure his recovery is faster, because the rehabilitation improved his physical condition.

The Acupuncture is a technique of stimulation of defined areas in the skin, for needles and/or for transfer of heat for therapeutic ends. It fills out a gap between the medicine and the surgery.  

It is known that the acupuncture affects all of the physiologic systems (normal function of the body), acting from way to take the organism to find his energy balance, doing with that the energy blockades (pain points) they are undone and the energy flows correctly for the body. It is gotten to restore the normal activities of the organs, visceras, members, since, there be not irreversible structural alterations (for instance, paralysis of members for rupture of the marrow espinal).   

It treats problems as paralyses, pain, locomotion difficulties, posture alteration, disk disease or bone alterations, skin problems, behavior problems, etc.    

The Physiotherapy is the treatment of a disease through exercises and apparels. It evaluates, prevents and  treats the movement disturbances. It acts in the most different areas with procedures, techniques, methodologies and specific approaches with the objective of treating, to minimize and to prevent the most varied dysfunctions.     

Many resources exist, as, for instance: the therapeutic ultrassom, laser, stimulation neuromuscular, pulse magnetic field, etc.   

Many problems can be treated as: articulate problems, muscle problems, bone problems, pain, locomotion difficulty, paralyses, muscle atrophies, arthrosis, etc.     

Chiropractic is the art of adjusting with the hands the sub-luxations of the articulations of the body. An exam of palpation of the articulations is accomplished and the articulations that come untidy they are adjusted.  She stimulates the force of the recuperation of the body to cure without the use of medicines or surgery.   

A sub-luxation doesn’t allow the nervous information to flow correctly, therefore when adjusting the body of the animal we are helping the nervous system so that he can recover his functionality, improving the movement of the articulations of the spine and of the extremities of the animal. This improvement of the movement results in muscles, tendons and ligaments more resistant, strong and developed.  

A disadjusted vertebra can cause pain, posture alteration and in the walk, paralyses, aggressiveness, low performance in animals athletes, lameness, etc.   

As it is a specialized treatment, only the specialist of the area can specify the number of sections, treatment type and duration of the treatment.    

The animal seemingly can be recovered, but if it is not totally rehabilitated can happen a relapse or to appear other problems.

Rehabilitation in fractures

Filed under: Animal news — Tags: , , , , , — Cynara @ 8:00 am

The several forms of stabilization of a fracture also pick in varied physiotherapy protocols on the same objective of bone cicatrization and precocious use of the affected member. 
 
Patient with preservative treatment they request weekly attendance so that they are observed adversities that frequently happen, above all for the lack of cooperation of the animal. Wounds, eschars, atrophies, contracture, adherences and no union is some of the expected sequels when they are used leaning for immobilization. 
 
The use of the therapeutic ultrasound promotes muscular relaxation and it facilitates the kinesiotherapy work with prolongation and mobilization to articulate. The initial exercises should be soft, since the bone is still in remodelment phase. 
 
The laser activates the circulation and it accelerates the formation of bone callus. For reasons varied, certain fractures they are of difficult consolidation, in that way, the use of the laser soon after the surgery, in other words, in the period of larger cellular work, it contributes significantly to accelerate the process of bone cicatrization.

Rehabilitation in the nervous lesions

Filed under: Animal news — Tags: , , , , , — Cynara @ 8:00 am

Bearers of lesion of the outlying nerve can present symptoms differents clinical, in agreement with the degree of the compromising, and the prognostic is also differentiated, being been worth of the lesion type, of the location and of the time of the surgical repair. 
 
The functional activity of a member is formed by musculature agonist and antagonist, that oppose and promote a balance. In the lesion of an outlying nerve, there will be compromising of a certain muscle or muscular group, that should suffer a paralysis process or atrophies; while the muscle or muscular group, that it will be able to, or no, to take to the bone deformity. 
 
The rehabilitation has as objective recovers deficits and to prevent deformities. The recovery of the nerve can happen in agreement with the type of the lesion and with the success of the surgical procedure, however although there is nervous regeneration, the member many times can suffer irreparable damages if there is not physiotherapeutic attendance during that period. 
 
The kinesiotherapy consists of passive exercises, prolongation and mobilization of the committed members, seeking to the prevention of the deformities and the maintenance of the movement widths to articulate. 
 
The acupuncture reestablishes the flow of energy of the meridians, doing with that the organism enters in balance.

Therapeutic exercises

Filed under: Animal news — Tags: , , , , — Cynara @ 8:00 am

Therapeutic exercise is perhaps one of the most valuable modalities used in canine physical rehabilitation. Some of the common goals of therapeutic exercise are to improve active pain-free range of motion, muscle mass and muscle strength, balance, performance with daily function, and aerobic capacity; to help prevent further injury; and to reduce weight and lameness.

Common activities include standing exercises, controlled leash activities, stair climbing, treadmill activity, wheelbarrowing (for forelimb activity) and dancing (for rear limb activity). Other activities include jogging, sit to stand exercises, pulling or carrying weights, walking and trotting across cavaletti rails, playing ball, taping a bottle or syringe cap to the bottom of an unaffected foot to encourage weight-bearing, slinging the contralateral good limb, and using balance balls or rolls.

Therapeutic exercise is an important method to assist an animal´s return to the best function possible. In addition, the equipament needes is relatively inexpensive, and similar principles apply to a variety of individuals and conditions.

Physical rehabilitation in animals

Filed under: You knew that... — Tags: , , , , — Cynara @ 8:00 am

The aim of physical rehabilitation is to reestablish normal function using modilaties such as heat and electrical stimulation, mobilization, and therapeutic exercise. It is the use of noninvasive techniques, for the rehabilitation of injuries in animals.

Superficial heating agents penetrate to a depth of approximately 1 cm. Deep heating agents can elevate tissue temperatures at depth of 3 cm or more.

Therapeutic ultrasound is considered an effective treatment modality for rehabilitating musculoskeletal conditions such as restricted range of motion. Advantages of therapeutic ultrasound are: produces local heating of deeper tissues and treatment time is short.

Massage therapy is a technique in which the therapist uses only his or her hands and body to massage soft tissues.

It is known that the acupuncture affects all of the physiologic systems (normal function of the body), acting from way to take the organism to find its energy balance, doing with that the energy blockades (trigger points) they are undone and the energy flows correctly for the body. It is gotten to restore the normal activities of the organs, visceras, members, since, there be not irreversible structural alterations (for instance, paralysis of members for rupture of the espinal cord). 

It treats problems as paralyses, pain, locomotion difficulties, posture alteration, disk hernia or bone alterations, skin and behavior problems, etc.  

The Physiotherapy is the treatment of a disease through exercises and apparels. It evaluates, prevents and reats the movement disturbances. It acts in the most different areas with procedures, techniques, methodologies and specific approaches with the objective of treating, to minimize and to prevent the most varied dysfunctions.   

Many resources exist, as, for instance: the therapeutic ultrassound, laser, TENS, neuromuscular stimulation, field magnetic pulse, etc. 

Many problems can be treated as: articulate, muscular and bone problems, pain, locomotion difficulty, paralyses, muscular atrophies, arthrosis, etc.   

Chiropractic is the art of adjusting with the hands the subluxações of the articulations of the body.

As it is a specialized treatment, only the specialist of the area can specify the number of sections, treatment type and duration of the treatment.  

The animal apparently can be recovered, but if it is not totally rehabilitated can happen a relapse or to appear other problems.
