Announcement from Our Physical Rehabilitation Department
We are pleased to announce that Dr. June Hacker-Traiger has completed her training and is now a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner (CCRP). Physical rehabilitation can benefit patients recovering from orthopedic or neurological surgeries or injuries, patients suffering from debilitating arthritis or degenerative neurological disease and even patients who need weight loss and/or conditioning.
For each patient that she sees, Dr. Hacker-Traiger will examine the patient and formulate an individualized treatment plan. Some modalities of therapy that are used are: underwater treadmill, therapeutic laser, therapeutic ultrasound, neuromuscular electrical stimulation, therapeutic exercises and manual therapy. Following surgery or injury, rehabilitation helps restore function more quickly and fully. Physical rehabilitation helps maintain or build muscle mass, improve mobility and decrease pain.
Therapeutic laser is now available at Oradell Animal Hospital. It is used to decrease pain and inflammation and speed healing. It can be used for osteoarthritis, muscle injury, wounds, and post operatively. Laser treatments are noninvasive and painless. Laser therapy can reduce the need for pain medication and anti-inflammatory medication. The only contraindications to laser therapy are that it should not be used on tumors, eyes, or testes.
Dr. Hacker-Traiger is accepting referral appointments for consultation. Referring veterinarians will receive a status report following every visit.
