STAR Rehab facilities
We want to ensure our patients have access to the best treatment options when it comes to Rehabilitation, Pain Management and Canine Sports Medicine & Conditioning. That’s why we have invested heavily in state-of-the-art facilities and equipment at STAR Rehab.
STAR Rehab’s facilities include:
- Hydrotherapy – aquatic treadmill
- Land-based treadmill
- Physical therapy exercise aids
- Laser therapy
- Therapeutic ultrasound machine
- Transcutaneous electrical neuromuscular stimulation (TENS)
- Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES)
- Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (pEMF)
- Gait analysis system
Our state-of-the-art Gait Analysis System (of which there are only a handful in the country), allows the collection of quantitative data on the mobility of our patients where appropriate. Data can be collected repeatedly through the course of a patient’s rehabilitation program to allow a quantitative assessment to be made of their progress.
It is also possible to pick up early subclinical lameness in sporting dogs to identify areas of weakness and prevent worsening of mild, previously unidentified injuries.
