EXERCISE

PRESCRIPTION

Remedial Exercise Prescription (REP) involves incorporating different exercises depending on the level and ability of your dog, in order to improve core strengthening, proprioceptive pathways and improving function in everyday tasks.

Prescriptive exercises can help to build strong neural pathways between the limbs and central nervous system, improve lateral flexibility, develop good fore and hind limb placement and awareness, improve core strengthening and encourage even weight bearing.

It is important to discuss these exercises with your therapist so that the frequency and intensity is appropriate for your dog and their stage of tissue repair. It is also important that the exercises are done with good form and in the correct way so as not to cause more harm than good.
