“Is Animal Physical Therapy Right For Me?”
This quiz is perfect for you if:
"Is Animal Physical Therapy Right For My Animal?"
Unlike other services such as animal chiropractic, massage, or acupuncture, which may provide ‘temporary relief’ of pain and symptoms…
Animal Physical Therapy (when done properly) not only can help your animal quickly get rid of their pain…
But also make sure that their pain STAYS away, so you can get back to living your active normal lifestyle with your animal.
The thing is, an animal body is very complex, and its ability to heal, regenerate, and recover naturally is not something that should be underestimated.
But in order for that to happen, it does require time, patience, and a bit of work on your end.

"Animal Physical Therapy: It All Starts With Getting To Know Your Animals"
We understand the frustrations out there in the medical system. It’s hard to get more than 15 minutes with a specialist, or even find a way to get the specialized care you need.
And even with most clinics, treatments often feel rushed, impersonal, and not very focused…
Which is why our first step… before we do anything… is to get to know you better.
Because every single animal who suffers from pain is different.
They all have different body types, past injuries, and different levels of pain tolerance.
At Salt Lake Animal Physical Therapy, we understand that every single animal is unique, which is why our first step is to get a deep understanding of what is happening to your animal, and how it is effecting their life and your time with them. So we can create a plan that focuses around YOUR ANIMAL and your goals.
At Salt Lake Animal Physical Therapy, we have created an environment that was designed for healing.
Which starts with having an open, honest conversation about your animals health. Then we can make sure animal physical therapy is right for them and you.
We want to make sure you’ll feel comfortable working with us, and to make sure that we will be a good fit, before we begin any form of treatment on your animal.
Step 1: Get Rid Of Pain & Inflammation
Have you ever asked yourself:
We realize that it can be difficult for your animal to move and enjoy life when they are in pain. They no longer want to do the fun things that they used to and just don’t have as much energy. That’s why, after getting to know you and your animal, getting rid of pain and inflammation is the next step.
Once we work with your animal to remove pain and inflammation, through animal physical therapy, then it becomes easier to move and build the necessary infrastructure to keep you that way.
We have seen others try to skip this step and get your animal moving while they are still in pain.
This can be no fun for anyone!
That’s why we git rid of pain and inflammation first and then get your animal moving. To start to get rid of the pain and inflammation we use many techniques including Manual Therapy.
"What Is Manual Therapy?"
Manual therapy is the art of using highly scientific, targeted techniques that will help your animal QUICKLY restore mobility, and alleviate pain with movement BEFORE we do any form of exercise.
We use our hands, and different tools that will help your animal feel better by:
These treatments work by removing the “restrictions” from areas that are chronically injured. It will increase blood flow and circulation into these areas…which will improve the flow of oxygen and promote a much healthier environment for your animals’ tissues to heal.
Our clients are usually SHOCKED to see how quickly their animals’ mobility returns just after a few short treatment sessions.
No, it’s not like “chiropractic”
‘Manual therapy’ techniques are much more targeted to treat the ‘soft tissues’ which will take pressure OFF painful joints, instead of directly ‘adjusting’ an area.
We have developed our manual treatment methods from years of practice and training as Doctors of Physical Therapy. In order to give your animal the quickest, most effective, and safest way to restore motion before they start to exercise.
Step 2: Get To The Root Cause Of The Problem!
It can be worrying if your animal has had pain for a long time, and an x-ray, or an MRI might show “degenerating discs”, “herniations”, “inflammation” or various other injuries. The great news is that animal physical therapy can and will help!
Many people are unaware these problems CAN get better, even if your veterinarian has said that there is nothing that can be done.
The body is very complex, and everything is truly ‘connected’.
We often find there are other parts of your animals’ body that may not be working ‘correctly’, and makes your back ‘compensate’ for these problems.
Examples of this may include:
But for every single animal, the ‘root cause’ may be a bit different. Because it depends on the animal, their history, their body type, and many other factors.
Our goal is to get to the bottom of the real cause of pain, eliminate it, so your animal can start their path to getting mobility back, and return to the things you love to do with them the most. This is one reason that animal physical therapy is very unique and uses the most natural methods.
Which is why we perform a full-body movement assessment.
"What Is A Movement Assessment?"
A deep analysis of every single one of your animals’ movements, head to toe. This allows us to see very clearly what is different about YOUR ANIMAL, and to SHOW you how everything is connected.
Our movement assessment will capture all of these potential root causes, and give you clarity, and peace of mind to know that this problem of your animals’ CAN be fixed.
Step 3: Give You the Tools to Keep it Gone.
Some of these tools may include:
Common signs your animal is in pain might be:
Animals are resilient creatures and great at hiding their pain. So if you notice signs of pain it is likely more painful than you think.
At Salt Lake Animal Physical Therapy our program offers much more than a few exercises or stretches…
We provide highly personalized, individualized, in-depth treatment for your animal in a safe and fun way.
We do this by using advanced neuroscience and exercise physiology, and give you absolute laser focused attention into every single movement that your animal performs.
This will allow your animal to QUICKLY:
Finally, We Are ALWAYS Here To Support You.
Our support includes:
At this point, you think that your animals’ pain is just something you have to live with…but secretly you hope they feel normal again. It’s not fun watching your animal suffer and having trouble walking, running or doing things that they love.
What I can tell you is that a simple stretch or just icing it are not likely to help.
Why? Because it simply just masks the pain and tries to temporarily cover it up.
I know so many people who have just accepted that pain & stiffness is now a normal part of their animals’ lives. This does NOT have to be you! Animal physical therapy, done right, can and will help!
If you would like to learn more about what it is that we can do for you and your animal, BEFORE you commit to working with us, I highly recommend our free, 30-minute discovery session:
A discovery visit is a free, 30 minute consultation with us, where we will first get to know each other and make sure that we’re a good fit for each other BEFORE we start.
Please keep in mind we are very selective in who we choose to work with, because we only choose to work with animals’ and owners that we believe we CAN help and truly make a difference in their life.
Due to high demand and popularity, availability for these sessions is limited, so if your need is urgent, and you would like to have your problem solved sooner:
If pain is keeping your animal from walking, running, playing, jumping, or doing things that they love, then you need to take a few minutes to contact us today.
Wishing You The Best,
Doctor of Physical Therapy
